Rainbow Sierrans is your LGBTQ hiking group! We are a part of the Sierra Club and we like having fun outdoors while promoting conservation and community. Rainbow Sierrans’ outings and events run the gamut from easy urban strolls to vigorous peak hikes; relaxed car camping to demanding wilderness backpacks; and naturalist-led walks to hands-on restoration and trail maintenance projects. Everyone is welcome on our outings. Rainbow Sierrans is an activities section of the SF Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. We encourage you to become an official member of Rainbow Sierrans by going to www.rainbowsierrans.org.
