What we're about

Public Group

Weekend hiking with the canine companion(s) and socializing with other hikers in the community. One doesn't have to be a dog owner to be a member; just someone who likes hanging around dogs and the outdoors. A lot of the hike I post can be found online at, but other suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

In honor of our Corgi, Zinfandel, most hikes I post will be low-key and fall within beginner-to-intermediate levels. The majority of the hikes will fall between one to two hours. Feel free to hike longer/shorter if you want, and to set your own hiking pace.

This is a FREE Meetup group, and I have no intention to ever charge a membership fee. Hikes will generally start at 9 or 10 am because I prefer to exercise in the morning. I will try to balance the majority of the hikes between Marin and Sonoma County, with the occasional trip out to the East Bay Regional Parks.

Hope to see you on the trails!
