What we're about
Hiking Addicts is all about excellent hiking adventures (as well as post-hike socializing). We may throw in the occasional trail biking event, but our priority is having good times on hiking adventures, laughing, and building relationships with quality people. This group is a fun, relaxed and friendly group of folks who love to hike, and maybe share a meal after an adventurous day.
There are so many wonderful places and views to explore all over our San Diego County. We often learn about nature, geocaching, map reading, survival skills, and, most importantly, how to find our way back to our cars! If you are a beginner, intermediate, or experienced hiker, you are welcome on our adventures. We all have our own hiking pace and abilities and you can feel free to hike fast, medium, or slow. No one will be left behind! (No rescue helicopters will be needed to search for you!) We have several Hikeaholics experienced at the back of the pack. We may hike at sunrise or sunset, at the beach or the mountains, in rain, hail, wind, daylight, or moonlight and everything in-between. Come join us for some exercise along our beautiful North County trails that we can explore together.
If you are qualified and want to be an Event Organizer, great! We have lots of opportunities for all to participate at any level of involvement you desire. This group is your group so we are eager to hear about new ideas for great hiking and outdoor adventures.
Except for expenses anyone would incur when hiking (gas/carpool money, food, park entrance, gear, etc), this group is FREE. No organizer will ever ask you to pay or donate just to attend an outing. We simply love being outside and want to share the experience with others.
We are not professional guides and all outings are at your own risk. By joining this group and attending an event, you are demonstrating that you understand you are responsible for your own safety. Information on proper gear and safety checklists, as well as a release of liability, can be found in our Files section. (Click on “More,” then go to “Files.”) We also highly recommend that you carry your own medical and auto insurance policies.
