What we're about

Family Wellness Group was created by a group of friends in 2014 to bring together positive people to share, network, and achieve collective and individual health and fitness goals. We do this through hiking the amazing parks and trails around the San Francisco Bay Area. We are a multi-cultural/multi-ethnic group who's purpose is to encourage everyone (especially African-American and people of color) to get out into the natural world. Science proves that it improves physical and mental well-being!

We also organize other fitness activities and sponsor events that support the community. We would be honored for you to be a part of the Hiking Family.

All fitness levels are welcome, but be sure to keep in mind your fitness level and the difficulty of the hike.
You can find us on Facebook too!

FWG Hikes Lafayette Reservoir

Lafayette Reservoir Recreation Area

Hey Fam, ***Keep Reading for Directions***

Switching up the schedule, this week we'll be out at Lafayette Reservoir. The Upper Trail is about 5 miles with a few steep inclines/declines on dirt trails. There is also a lower trail that is 2.7 miles of paved terrain with very little elevation.

We'll be meeting at 8:30 am (a little later start since the parking lot is a little bigger) by the restrooms on the right side of the parking lot. As you drive up the hill, the trail start and restrooms are to the right. Parking is to the left. Parking is I believe $3 for two hours or $7 for the entire day (The majority will finish within 2 hours). Please arrive with enough time to pay for parking at the machines(or booth if paying for the entire day), stretching and bathroom visits. We'll be hitting the trail at 8:45, if you are late, follow the blue chalk please.
Please remember shoes with good traction, water or an energy drink, and snack.
