What we're about

This group is for people who are ready for bigger, more challenging hikes and want to create small groups to go on those hikes together.

If you have found that your friends are awesome but almost none of them enjoy grueling 9+ hour hikes, then come join us for a hike or two.

This group will simply help organize the logistics, carpools, etc of those hikes, and put dates on the calendar for when hikes will take place. Groups may be broken into smaller groups once at the trailhead for manageability.

The hikes tackled in 2020 will be:

• Sitton Peak (1/11/20)

• Mt. Wilson (1/25/20)

• San Gorgonio Peak

• San Bernardino Peak

• Santiago Peak

• Ontario Peak

• Hot Springs Mountain (3/7/20)

• Cuyamaca Peak

• Big Pine Lakes trail (camping trip June/July)

If you have bigger aspirations (like climbing California 14ers, or maybe, say, Matterhorn), this is a great place to meet people who are also interested in challenging themselves for tough hikes and hopefully, climbs.

A few requests from your organizers:

1. Safety first. Organizers are not responsible for hikers and cannot guarantee any outcomes. Hike at your own risk and please only join us if you are a non-litigious type: we are here to enjoy one another's company and keep the system out of it.

2. Don't cancel your attendance with less than 24 hours' notice. While plans always change, please only mark your attendance if you are definitely planning to attend, and if your plans do change, please cancel with more than one day's notice. We may remove members with repeated last-minute cancellations.

3. Do carpool!

We look forward to meeting you on the trail!

2021 CACTUS TO CLOUDS (Full moon hike) 20 miles/11,000' gain in elevation

Great job to all of you that participated in 2020s hike.....Grand Finale to the 2021 season under a beautiful full moon. This will be a hand picked group due to the extreme elevation gain and demands put upon the body. If you missed 2020s or if you're into pain and want to endure it again 😀 please join the waitlist and start preparing. I generally post hikes for Saturdays but with the full moon on Thursday I thought it would be special and hopefully some of you may be able to talk your boss into a four day weekend with a years notice. 🤞😀 ...More details forthcoming 👣

* For now please message me with any questions you may have so we dont end up with a years worth of questions and comments on this hike thread.
