What we're about

We are a group of casual and social recreational hikers that meet for weekend half day hikes (and a few mid-week hikes) where we live, work and play; in the beautiful hills of the East San Francisco Bay Area! Special urban hikes in San Francisco will also be featured. Come and enjoy some fun hikes with us and meet other active people with many common interests. Friendly dogs are welcome to join us for on many of our hikes.
