Welcome couples over 50. We are a friendly group who enjoy hiking and other activities together as we build community and friendships. Come for part or all of the hike and /or picnic afterwards. Foothills Park is restricted to residents and their guests so this is a great time to visit as our guest!
Foothills Park is a nature lover's paradise, providing spectacular views of the Bay Area. Wildlife abounds. It's common to see deer, turkey, coyotes, and the occasional bobcat. We'll hike past chaparral, woodlands, fields, streams, and a lake.
