What we're about

Like to hike? Like to hike at a fast pace? Like to hike at a slow pace? Like to hike with interesting people? Like to hike with your beloved (leashed) dog? Come hike with us. We've been doing this for 12 years now, and it's always fun! Hike your own hike with us!

IMPORTANT: RAIN ALWAYS CANCELS THE HIKE!

DUES/FEES
There are no membership dues to be a part of this group. For most of the events, a $1 donation at the trailhead is asked, but it's totally voluntary and refundable. The donation helps with the planning and organizing of the hikes in addition to managing the TOaks Hikers meetup web-site.

BONUS:

At least 10 couples have met on the TOaks hikes. I thought maybe this piece of information people would find interesting.
We've got 2 sets of people who have actually gotten married. And a 3rd couple is officially engaged!
We've got another pair who are living together.
Many hikers have found longstanding friendships--sharing vacations together!

Makes sense that this would happen as we've all got this wonderful thing called nature in common.

Just thought you might wanna know this interesting piece of trivia.
