For purposes of our group, everyone is listed as a "Rookie" until they complete their first Hills & Hops hike. Otherwise, are you an experienced hiker, or just looking for a new adventure (not that they're mutually exclusive)?

I'm not extremely experienced. I've done a handful of the trails around the Bay Area and would love to do more.

In which city are you located? About half our members are living in a different city than their Meetup profile indicates.


Three horses walk into a bar on a Tuesday. If Christmas falls on a Tuesday ... what's your favorite band?

Great Big Sea

How did you hear about Hills & Hops?

Doesn't really matter.

Do you have a favorite hike you'd like to introduce to the group?

I haven't done a ton of hiking, but I like the Rim Trail at Lafayette Reservoir a lot.


Hi! Looking forward to getting out and hiking some new (to me!) trails in the area!

What Merle is saying about this Meetup Group

Best hiking group in the Bay Area! Great people, fun & challenging hikes, and then chilling in a local watering hole. What more could you ask for? A conscientious, organized group leader? We got that too.
