What we're about

Any & all who wish to meet great people , make new friends, network, explore unique & hidden places in nature all over the Bay area. Many Outings are wine related, but optional to participate in. Not a runners group , as we are more into exploratory hikes, photography, adventure, biking, Zip Lining, kayaking, Art & Wine & Cultural tours, Hawaii adventure trips & more. There are over 40 different events & outings to take part in. Outdoor treks are rated as very easy to extreme. No boring point A to point B hikes. All ages are welcome & some events are kid & dog friendly. I have over 25 years experience conducting outings to places most never knew existed. or have seldom seen.
These events bring people closer together & by days end all are usually one big happy family. Most outings end with an always fun optional social dinner gathering. Some events require equipment rentals & must be pre-paid. Other outings ask for a reasonable donation . * Most all outings include: Water, Juices, Tea, Energy & protein Drinks, Coffee lattes, an abundant variety of trail bars, other snacks, Gourmet Fruit & Nut packs, hiking poles, jackets, hats, gloves, parking fees, car pooling, shuttles, personal Wine varietals, & a ton of fun.
You may bring a guest with you. But be advised; come once & you may be hooked.
So get out there with us. You won't be disappointed.
