What we're about

Hello Fellow Hikers!

Welcome to East Bay Hikers. We’re a group dedicated to hiking and exploring trails in the East Bay and beyond. All are welcome. Please take a moment to complete the poll under the “More” tab. This will help me understand what you are most interested in.

Whether you’re hiking with a meetup, or on your own, please review these hiking safety tips. (http://www.findyourtrail.com/trail-safety1/)

Since we’ll occasionally be hiking on East Bay Mud land, you’ll need to get a permit. You can get that here (https://www.ebmud.com/recreation/trail-use-permits).

Hike Briones Park

Bear Creek Staging Area

Greetings all my next hike will be at Briones Regional Park. Distance is about 4.5 miles. Elevation gain/loss will be about 700 ft. Parts will be steep. Bring water/lunch/trail snacks. To get to the trial head take the 24 to the Orinda exit head north on Camino Pablo to Bear Creek rd and turn right. Take Bear Creek Rd until you see the sign that says Briones Regional Park Bear Creek staging area. Turn right there. There may be a fee of $5 this time of year. Go to the large parking lot at the far end the trail head is there. Hope to see you there Norman

Yosemite Nat'l Park or Sequoia Nat'l Park Day Hike
Needs a date and time

Location visible to members

Hi! Would you be interested in setting up a meet up for day after Christmas or the 27th at Yosemite National Park or even Sequoia National Park for a day hike? It would be fun to do a little wintery (maybe snowy) hike during the holidays. It also is always safe to hike in groups during this time of year. Just a suggestion since I was thinking of going as well :)
