What we're about

This group is for LGBTQIA individuals and ALLIES who are looking for something a little more active than your average social meetup. If you love good company and the beauty of the outdoors, you'll fit right in.

If you RSVP for an event, please be sure to follow through. If you can't make it for any reason, please change your RSVP as a courtesy to the organizer and participants.

Activities will vary in intensity, in hopes that both seasoned explorers and beginners can get something out of it. Expect a lot of hiking meetups, but other types of social and outdoor activities too. Also, please feel free to suggest a meetup if you have any ideas! To help with the cost of running this group, you can donate at https://www.paypal.me/jwascher or donate cash at one of our events.

This is an all-inclusive group, welcoming people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, ethnicities, body types and of course, any allies. Assholism will not be tolerated.
