What we're about

PLEASE NOTE: To ensure the health of every group member, all Hiking Through Grief members must wear a mask and show proof of COVID immunizations in order to participate in each hike.

Would you like to be on the move rather than sitting around in a room? Join this group that provides informal support to young adults as we hike together through grief.

Hiking Through Grief allows adults and their allies to come together to support each other, at whatever point in the healing process you are at. All are welcome whether your friend or family member passed away a week, a month, a year ago, or during your childhood. In this group, you know everyone gets it.

Our hikes are meant to be casual, simple, fun and relaxing; just a group of people who can relate to each other, connect, build supportive relationships, and share in a relevant healing experience. Hike routes, pace, and duration will vary, so please check Meetup for future hike locations and meeting times. Typically, we will break halfway through for a break, so feel free to bring a lunch or a snack.

Hiking Through Grief

Needs a location

Hiking Through Grief is an informal support group for adults (18+) who have experienced the death of a friend or family member, and those who support them. Our hikes are casual, fun and relaxing. Hikers are encouraged, but not required, to share their stories and insights. All are welcome, whether your friend or family member passed away a week, a month, a year ago, or during your childhood.
This month, we will be hiking the Lime Ridge Open Space, Ygnacio Valley Road (cross street Montecito) Walnut Creek. We will meet in the parking lot and hike 2-3 hours. Bring a lunch or snack for our break near the halfway point. This trail is kid and animal friendly.
We will leave promptly at 8am in order to complete the hike on time. We hope you join us! If you need specific directions from your location to the meetup point, feel free to give us a call at (925)[masked] by Friday, July 8th.
