What we're about

We are a group of young professionals with similar interests---one being hiking! Having other people come along with on our adventures makes things even more fun. We start as a group and finish as a group. Some of our goals this year are hiking The 6 Pack of Peaks challenge, reaching the top of Mt. Whitney, and organizing new camping trips! Our group consists of young professionals( ages 20s-30s) who need some time to adventure outside of working 40 hours/week. Over the past 2 years, we have become a hiking family and are always welcoming new members!
We meet on Saturdays around Orange County/LA County(locations differ depending on hike destination). If this sounds like fun, then be sure to join our group and sign-up for our next hike!
