Mensa / San Francisco Region

San Francisco, CA

Mensa / San Francisco Region

This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.

You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.

If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website,, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.

Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.

If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to  Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location.  If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.

We hope to see you soon!

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

Mill Valley, CA

Hiking in Marin: Mountains, Meadows, Marshes and Mist

This group is for everyone who wants to explore the stunning beauty and remarkable trails of verdant Marin County. We spend much of our time hiking among the majestic redwoods, but we'also take advantage of Marin's glorious coastal-trail views, its high peaks, and its many streams and waterfalls -- sometimes all in the same hike!

Many of our hikes are fairly moderate in both distance and pace, though we do mix in longer hikes with more vertical, as well as occasional beginner hikes. But regardless of distance, virtually all of our hikes are limited in attendance, so that we can ensure everyone's safety and attempt to keep the group together as much as possible. Smaller groups also make for a more intimate, natural experience in the wilderness, which is particularly important to us because we like to get off the well-known trails as much as possible. There are plenty of 100-hikers-and-a-cloud-of-dust groups on Meetup, rampaging along the fire roads. This is not one of them.

Because we limit numbers, the majority of our hikes have wait lists. If you join a waitl ist, you are expected to monitor it, and your email, to find out whether you have moved up to confirmed. RSVPs and wait lists will close at 5 pm the night before the hike, and no one will move up after that time, so you don't have to worry about a late-night promotion to confirmed that you don't see until the next morning. 5 pm the night before is also the deadline for anyone on the confirmed list to cancel an RSVP.

PLEASE NOTE: If you fail to show up for a hike with a wait list, or cancel at the last minute, you'll be removed from the group. It's a one-strike policy. Be fair -- let someone else have your spot when you decide not to go.

If all of that sounds good, then please join us as we explore the striking beauty awaiting us in our local forests, mountains and coastal trails.

Let's go hiking in Marin!
