And most importantly, if you are actively coughing, sneezing or feel sick, please wait until you are better to join us.  We want all of you to feel safe and be well.

We are so lucky to live in the Bay Area, California, where shaded tall tree forests, mountain trails with amazing views and beautiful sunset beach walks are all nearby. We would love to hear your suggestions for new beautiful areas to explore together.

In general, we host events mostly in the late morning, afternoon and evenings, so you can get your beauty sleep and get your work done early, giving you options to fit your personal schedule.

We’ll find most hiking and walking places under big tall trees or shaded, open space, amazing reviews in country parks without getting sunburns or too much sun exposure, at beaches with fresh ocean air or fresh ocean breeze, and beautiful sunsets.

If you would like to reunite with old friends or meet new people, while exercising outdoors, come join us. We look forward to meeting you and making good memories together!

🥾Portola Redwoods State Park🏞️ 7 miles Hike Redwoods🌲Dinner @ Alice's

Hello Team, Let's meet up go for a Wellness hike at Portola State Park Preserve enjoy redwoods tress and most shady trails, no bikes and no dogs, just us hiking together, with fresh mountain air, water falls, for our physical health and mental well-being😇

It’s no secret that some of the best redwood trails are located on the Central Coast. But while a few of the parks like Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park attract big crowds, there are others that you might have never even heard of before. Portola Redwoods State Park is one of those hidden gems!

Portola Redwoods State Park is a wonderful place to escape the summer heat. With a dense forest and 50 inches of rainfall per year, the trails within this park stay cool even when the summer temperatures start picking up.

The park's 2,800 acres drops from a ridgetop into a deeply shaded redwood forest, offering a hushed getaway from the suburban bustle of nearby Silicon Valley and the South Bay Area. The visitor center, with its couches and fireplace, feels like a wilderness lodge. Eighteen miles of trails follow meandering creeks, where moisture-loving coast redwoods stand tall among ferns and huckleberries. Waterfalls on Fall and Pescadero creeks tumble down mossy banks over rocks and woody debris. https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=539

It's tucked away in a remote mountain forest that can be difficult to reach. The windy Road is the only road that goes in and out of the park. The drive to Portola SP can be a bit nerve-wracking as you’ll need to drive along several narrow mountain roads with steep drop-offs below.

Meet time: 1pm @ Madrone Parking & Picnic Area

Hike time: 1:30pm
Level: Moderate+
Length: 7-8 miles

Bonfires🔥Ocean 🌊 Beach 🏖️ Wellness 🌄Sunset 🥾Walk

Needs a location

Hello Ocean Lovers, Let's meet up go for a easy social sunset walk at Ocean Beach beach, enjoy fresh ocean air, Healing Sea for our physical health and mental well-being😇 Meeting new friends and just relax after hiking hanging out at beach enjoy the bonfires🔥🏖️

Ocean Beach San Francisco is a wide expanse of sand and dunes that faces the Pacific Ocean, stretching for three miles along the entire western edge of San Francisco.

This is where San Franciscans come to feel the cool breezes and breathe the clean, salty air that comes in off 6,000 miles of open ocean.

History
City residents have been coming out to Ocean Beach San Francisco for over 100 years, from the time the western area was just a wilderness of sand dunes. A street car line brought visitors out here to eat at the Cliff House, swim at the Sutro Baths and go on the rides at the Playland amusement park (which closed in 1972, alas).
