What we're about

Welcome to our group! We are a group of outgoing friendly hikers We enjoy hiking in the local bay area, mostly North Bay. Our hikes tend to be between 10 to 16 miles, at a faster pace and more strenuous. Most hikes will start early sometimes at 7 am, 8 am or 9 am. We usually are done by early afternoon or noon so that you can get more done on the weekends. Early AM start times also help with social distancing and to allow time to accomplish more later in the day.

Please plan to stay with the group and complete the per-determined route. Do not go so far and then take others with you to do your own route and then splitting up the group. If you are sick or injured and need to leave prior to the end of the hike please let the leader know and then you can hike out alone or with one other friend.

For most hikes the pace is around 2.75 to 3 mph. All of the hikes will have elevation gain; some more so than others. We are faster than a lot of other meetups (unless the discription says slower)so please be prepared for a workout, but it is great fun. We urge people to use their energy to keep up. If you find that our pace is too fast I recommend going on one of the slower paced hikes that my husband will lead.

I describe the hikes as Moderate or Strenuous. Moderate hikes are less than 10 miles and only one uphill with gentle grade. A strenuous hike can have 2 up hills or one very steep uphill and is usually more than 10 miles with the exception of Taylor Mountain.

I also plan road trips which include hiking and camping in a specific location such as the Pinnacles or Mount Lassen, Crescent city area, the Sierras, or Mendocino county.

Things to remember: please wait at all junctions. If you can't make it to a hike please RSVP yourself out more than 24 hours prior to the event. If you do not show up but do not change your RSVP to no you will be removed from the group. I have to wait list people now and it is unfair to people on the waitlist if others take a spot but don't show up. We start on time out of respect for the people who show up so please leave early from home to allow for things like traffic. If you RSVP for a hike please show up or take your self out so that someone else on the waitlist can get in 24 hours or more prior to the hike.

Happy Trails!
