Stephen F


Feet First Founder and Main Organiser/ Guide


Hometown: Auckland, NZ

Organizer since:

February 17, 2010


Are you new to hiking or are you an experienced seasoned hiker who comes prepared etc for the days activity and the unknown weather conditions?

I'm the Founder and Main Organiser of Feet First..I started this group in 2010. Have run over 300 events..I'm very familiar with Auckland trails and tracks surrounding areas and some awesome places in the South Island..

We require a clear photo that allows another member to recognize your Face at an event or for carpooling.. This promotes safety and honesty for attending Feet First Events. And... Have you listed your first name we can understand?

Yes .

These social events have an outdoor risk factor involved attending and personal injury does occur sometimes.., so its important to Read and Understand all the Details of the Feet First Event you wish to come on..Do you agree ?

Yes I agree...

Can you please bring a Gold $2 NZ Coin or a Donation when you attend an event..and give to the guide / organiser when you arrive or finish the walk to help cover the meet up website costs etc .

The website costs around $200 a year to host plus I spend a fair amount of my own time planning and organising these events . I'm also self employed so I don't get a huge income or paid weeks off on holiday.

What suburb of Auckland do you live in ? Please be specific as this helps with carpooling.

Saint Johns near Mission Bay


I started Feet First in 2010 for adults interested in day hiking to see trails and tracks in and around Auckland. Feet First emphasis is slowing down & looking around, taking photos and learning something about the flora and trees, & exercise .

What Stephen F is saying about this Meetup Group

Great fun to mix socially in the wilderness with other like minded people , get some exercise, and an opportunity to stop and take some great photographs..
