What we're about

We like to do walks/urban hikes mostly on week-end afternoons. Walks usually start at 12 or 1 at a public transportation friendly starting point and end around 5:30 or 6ish with a get together afterwards. The after hike gathering is optional and non-drinkers are welcome. Some of our walks are dog friendly. Sometimes, we just go on a random urban adventure. We also like movies/films/art and we may schedule some film or art events as well.

Pedestrian Safety: In 2017, 20 pedestrians were killed on the streets of San Francisco. Do not become a tragic statistic. You are solely responsible for your own safety as walker and it is your sole responsibility to obey all traffic laws. Do not cross against a traffic light just because you are walking with a group! You will need to catch up once the traffic light allows you to proceed.

Liability Disclaimer: The organizers of this meet-up are unpaid volunteers and not expert hiking guides. All participants agree to assume 100% responsibility for their own safety, conduct, and well-being and recognize that possible hazards exist while participating in outdoor (or any other) activities, and agree to participate solely at their own risk. If you RSVP “Yes” and/or attend any of our events, it shall be conclusively presumed that you understand and agree to this policy.

Signing Up for Events: It is required that you sign up for any event that you attend unless you have permission from the Event Organizer to show up without signing up. If you experience technical difficulty in signing up, please message the Event Organizer.

No Show Policy: No-shows are not appreciated. Chronic no-shows are really not appreciated. If you sign up for an event and find you can no longer attend, please change your RSVP to NO. Chronic no-shows will be disallowed from signing up for future events. Thanks for your understanding.

Important Information: If you are late for a hike, it is very hard to catch up with us, because we keep moving. We walk at a medium pace. Escorts (also known as sweeps) are not provided, so slower walkers should be completely prepared to finish the hike on their own if they become separated from the group, and they may want to consider bringing a friend to walk with them. We reserve the right to make small changes to the route as needed.

Dog Information: If you ask us if you can bring a dog, and we say yes, this just means that we don't mind if you bring your dog. It does not mean that we have scoped out the entire route to see if there are any signs prohibiting dogs. You will need to keep your eyes out for these signs and you may need to reroute and meet us later on the route. You are 100% responsible for any issues or consequences regarding your dog on the hike or event.

ID, and Cash Only Policies, and the After Hike Gathering: Some of the places where we go after our hikes require ID for entry, regardless of your age. Please bring your ID if you plan to attend happy hour. Some of the places where we go after our hikes do not accept credit cards. Please bring cash, or be prepared to go in search of an ATM.

Haunted Hike

The Castro Theatre

Let's do a Thursday evening Haunted Hike. We will meet at the Castro Theater at 6:00 and leave at 6:10 sharp. The plan is to take streets that are well known for decorations on Halloween, in the hope that they are not taking the year off, but there are no guarantees. We will explore the Castro, and then make our way to the Buena Vista area and the the Halloween famous Belevedere Street in the Haight/Cole Valley. The sun sets earlier now so much of this hike will take place in darkness. Please bring a flash light if you need more than average city street lights. Happy Hour will be in the Haight/Cole Valley neighborhood. I am not sure we will find any restrooms on this hike so please plan accordingly. There will be hills and stairs. Please self monitor your social distance from others at at least 6 feet apart. Please note: Phone help is not available. Escorts or sweeps are not provided.
