San Diego Ladies Hiking, Walking & More!

San Diego, CA

San Diego Ladies Hiking, Walking & More!

This group is for ladies living in San Diego County and looking for new hiking, walking & exercise buddies, to keep active. Sometimes it is a struggle to find people you can rely on to go work out with and get some exercise in and I know for me I am more likely to work out if I have a commitment in place! Let's all help each other out by making more commitments to exercise together! I welcome all women who can commit (no flakes please) to whatever meetup exercise activity interests you the most in this group!

Our meetups will have a variety to choose from: easy, moderate, moderate-hard, hard and some very hard. We will also have walks, work-outs and other activities and even grabbing a coffee before or after! Most hiking/walking areas will be pretty close to San Diego, CA examples: Mission Trails (all of the San Diego 5 peak challenge hikes), Torrey Pines, Iron Mountain, Rancho Penasquitos, Lake Miramar, Poway Lake, Blackmountain and more. However some hosts will post hikes further out.

Please follow us on Instagram @sdhikingladies
We also have a group website:

Please make sure to checkout & support our group's sponsor, who is helping cover some of the yearly costs to keep the group going strong! The Furniture Square (Online Furniture Auction in San Diego): and follow them on Instagram/Facebook for giveaways @thefurnituresquare

By being a member of this group and attending the meetups, you understand that the hosts and I are not professional hikers or guides of any kind. By being a member of this group and/or attending the meetups of this group, you hereby agree to assume all risks and liability that are related to or resulting from any group meetups and activities during meetups. Group Organizer, assistant organizers and other members of the group assume no responsibility or liability, including but not limited to injury or loss of any kind/form due to the use of information you receive from the meetups, or from participating in activities in the meetups. You agree that neither you nor a third party will hold any of the group organizers or members liable for any injury, loss, or damage of any kind to yourself or others as a direct result from anything that has to do with this meetup group. Please also read all information below in the "FAQ's & REMINDERS" section, as there are important details you may need to know before attending a hike!


PROFILE PHOTO: Please make sure to post a photo of YOURSELF, showing your face, as your member profile (instead of your kids, pets, flowers, etc). This helps members identify you during the meetups! Your request to join the group may be declined if you do not have a photo showing your face.

YOUR RSVP: Please take your RSVP seriously and read the hike description thoroughly before RSVP’ing. Way too often we get last minute cancellations. Yes we understand people get sick and things happen, but often times people just don’t feel like going or end up making other plans and cancel last minute. This is not fair to those who are on the wait list and really wanted to go. Please be respectful of this and only RSVP if you can 100% commit! Please note: No-shows or those who cancel from a wait listed event last minute could get removed from a future wait listed event, this will be up to the hosts' discretion.

DESCRIPTION OF HIKES: Please make sure to read the entire description of a hike before you RSVP. We often get people who had no clue how hard a hike was because they did not read the description. Things to look out for are the amount of miles we are hiking, the elevation gain (incline of hike), and other details listed about the hike (rockiness, pace of the group, etc). If you have any questions, be sure to message the host about details before RSVPing!

WHAT TO BRING ON HIKES: Please always bring water on any hike or walk. Wear a high SPF sunscreen. A snack is always good just in case your body needs it. Poles are optional for steeper hikes and very helpful to some.

WHO CAN COME: This is a ladies group only. There is also no pets or children allowed on our hikes, must be 18+ to join.

BRINGING GUESTS: Please do NOT bring a guest unless they are signed up and have RSVP’d for the hike. All hikers should sign up for our group so they can agree to our disclaimer and the details of the hike.

LIMIT OF PEOPLE PER HIKE: Yes we have limits of the amount of people who can go per hike. I sometimes get asked “why” there is a limit for a hike. It is up to the host and how many people they feel comfortable hiking with/leading. As a host, there is a level of responsibility we feel for those hiking with us and we have our limits of how many people we feel comfortable keeping track of and just hiking with in general. Please note: Some hikes will first be set at a higher “max” (example 15 people max) and then will get lowered as people drop out (example: from 15 max to now 12 max). This is done by some hosts because there are almost always cancellations, and we set it high to start as a cushion, knowing there will be multiple cancellations.

WAIT LIST: Please be respectful of the wait list and only show up for hikes that you are on the “going” list to. It is not fair to other group members on the waitlist or the hosts who have there limits, to just show up. As people drop off from the going list, the next person in line on the wait list should be moved to the going list automatically, unless the maximum is set lower. Please make sure you have your meetup app notifications on, as you will be notified if you are moved. Please do not keep yourself on the wait list if you cannot go last minute, since there is a chance people cancel last minute and you may be moved over last minute.

FEES: Yes this hiking group does cost the organizer money to run (meetup charges $99 every 6 months, that’s $200/year). No you are not required to pay if you are in this group, it is a FREE group. However, donations are gladly welcomed and helpful! You can donate even as little as $1 here: https://secure.meetup...

HOSTING: If you are interesting in hosting a hike this year or becoming an official host of the group to host multiple hikes throughout the year, please reply back to this email or message Michella for more details!

2020 CHALLENGE: If you haven’t heard already, we are doing a 2020 Hiking Challenge this year! Complete 20 new hikes in this group, that you have never been on before, and receive a prize for your completion! Due to COVID19 this challenge will be extended into 2021.

San Diegans over 50

San Diego, CA

San Diegans over 50

San Diegans over 50 is all about singles and couples safely socializing around the Western part of San Diego County.  Our meetup began with a small group of single women friends in Pacific Beach, then expanded to singles organized by a male Navy chief, who expanded membership to both men and women. Two more organizers expanded us to include a broader range of San Diego County territory, which spanned La Mesa on the East to Del Mar on the North and all around the City of San Diego. I am the 5th organizer and am expanding our membership to include socially active singles, widowed, couples, and married adults over 50 who need to get out and socialize. 

The Covid-19 Pandemic has temporarily stopped our social life. But over time, we have met in restaurants and night clubs for socializing, gone dancing, attended music performances, and gone on walks through older communities throughout San Diego County. Over the coming months, we will return to those activities as more of us get vaccinated and feel safe. It is my hope that by Fall of 2021, we will return to normal.

When you apply for membership, please post a portrait so we can recognize you at our meetups. And for your name, please use your first name followed by an single letter; for example, if your name is Joe and your last name is Smith, then you could post your name as Joe S. Or, if you wish to remain mysterious, Joe X. We want to keep you safe.

The reason we collect membership dues is to pay to use this platform to announce meetups. The organizer (me) has to pay at least $100 every year. I have to paid the day I accepted ownership as Organizer. To share in this burden, I ask each of you to pay $5.00 dues to remain a member.  If the payment is an issue, put $5.00 in an envelope, seal the flap, write your name on the outside of the envelope, and hand it to me.

Thank you all for hanging in there during Covid and welcome!

Your Organizer,

Ron May

Patriot Women for Lifelong Friendships

San Diego, CA

Patriot Women for Lifelong Friendships

We are women (only) 35+ who are free thinkers and Patriots who love our country. First and foremost, we are here looking to make life-long friends with like-minded women. We are not a political group though we may lean toward those discussions from time to time. We do however, believe in free speech, the 2nd amendment, free and fair elections, anti-cancel culture, and we love being free. We want to get out and meet other women with similar viewpoints. We get it…we know what’s really going on in the world and we are not alone. Sometimes we just want to vent to others who get it!

It’s time to get out and patron those establishments that have survived this past year. If your friends are glued to the lies of the mainstream media and you’ve lost some because of your views or just want to be able to openly talk with other women that get it, then this is the group for you.

Once the group is established, we’ll be planning in-person fun events (following the cities guidelines of course) such as brunches, lunches, dinners, wine tasting, walks, hikes, etc. California be fully open June 15th so I’ll be planning the first event for after that date.

We also have a Facebook version of this group meant for discussions and sharing information. Events will only be posted on Meetup, not on Facebook for now.

Please note, anyone who is a no-show at 2 events, will be removed from the group. Please give us the courtesy of updating your RSVP if you are unable to attend, even if it's last minute.

La Jolla, CA

Power Scuba: San Diego Scuba Diving (and Beyond)

You've been looking for a scuba group that actually dives? YOU'VE FOUND IT!

FREE mask, snorkel, and weight replacement program for members!

A SAFETY-FOCUSED, NO-DUES, NON-PROFIT, INDEPENDENT SCUBA GROUP that dives more than any other club or group in San Diego (and beyond)!

Whether you dive occasionally or every week, Power Scuba is the fun, easy way to stay connected with the underwater scene in San Diego county and beyond. Explore familiar and brand new dive spots throughout Southern California (and overseas).

Safe diving within your personal limits and skillset is our emphasis. Advanced & technical dives will occur (for qualified members), in addition to our normal dives, but safety is not just lip service with us.

Eco-mindedness, in addition to safety, is always at the forefront of our thinking. The group participates in (and hosts) various environmental programs and our president represents our no-fishing (for fish) group to various orgs and entities. What better ocean stewards than those who peer beneath the surface regularly?

WE ACTUALLY DIVE, NOT JUST TALK ABOUT IT! All certification levels are welcome at this no-profit group. We're fun, often irreverent, and very, very passionate about our diving and the environment. Sound good? Do you want to see more of San Diego diving, both from the shore and boats? In need of a dive buddy? Join up now!

* We're not a scuba shop or boat and do not represent any of the same. *

* Power scuba will not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual preference. All are welcome. *
