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)?

Experienced hiker. I am expert at putting one foot in front of the other.

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?

Oh c'mon... don't make me choose. Love Neil Young, Mark Knopfler, Pearl Jam, The Band and Dylan. I also enjoy opera and recently have been listening to African guitar afficianodos

How did you hear about Hills & Hops?

I play Soccer most Saturdays (although have a by every few weeks) so prefer Sundays mostly

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

No... I am reasonably new to the area, so I am enjoying the discovery of East Bay hiking.


Hi, I live in Oakland and love to hike. My first hike was to the top of the Statue of Liberty when I was 4, and I just keep putting on the miles. Hiking is my first love, and backpacking my second.
