This hiking group keeps safety in mind. This group hikes usually hike on established trails such as fire roads. We don't go off trails like some other meetup groups do. Although, we try to keep hikes safe, unexpected things can happen on hikes. Any outdoor event can have risks. To minimize risks, please come prepared such as bringing shoes with good traction, lots of water, sweater if it is an evening hike, rain gear if it is expected to rain, etc.
If you want to host an event, either message the organizer of post it in Schedule a Meetup on the homepage.

Welcome to Outdoor Singles and Socials Meetup group!
I DON'T RECOMMEND CARPOOLING UNLESS YOU KNOW (AND/OR THEIR DRIVING) THAT PERSON!! There are some creeps in Meetup. :(
If you're a female and looking to carpool, you may write, "Seeking female carpoolers." Women should carpool together and never carpool alone with a guy you don't know !
You do need a picture to join. This group is for normal people. That means no creeps, weirdos, peeps covered all over with tattoos, no gangsters, people with mohawks, etc.
