What we're about

Want to hike with others but cannot meet early in the am or hike for 4-6 hours? Do you find yourself hanging in the back of the pack with the sweep on other meetup hikes? Then, this is the group for you!

We are slower walkers (25-30mins per mile) that like to enjoy the scenery and the company. It’s more than just exercise and getting through the route as fast as you can. Walking in nature clears your mind and allows you to reconnect with yourself and your surroundings.

Our hikes will usually be 3 to 5 miles in Contra Costa and Bay Area. Explore the trails with us! All ages welcome.
