Thursday Hikes at Ocean Trails
Meet up & Social Time: 8:15 a.m. Walk Time: 8:30 a.m. These trails combine breathtaking, photographic views of the Pacific Ocean with the opportunity for a vigorous 1-2 hr. hike. There are various trails on the preserve, so depending on the group, the walk can be moderate or strenuous-- or both. Hikers can go at their own pace. Expect a good work out as we follow trails down to the water and back up to the main trail. There are various trails, so we don't have to do the same ones each time. After our hike, we usually meet for brunch and socialize (optional). Our favorite eateries are Yellow Vase, Tomatillo or Poke Me in the Golden Cove shopping center at Hawthorne and Palos Verdes Blvd. South. You can also just have coffee, etc. on the patio in front of the golf club. Please join us for great morning exercise and good company!

What we're about

Welcome to The South Bay Walking & Hiking Group. This group is primarily for people 49+ who are really motivated to stay active and have a good time doing so. However, anyone who enjoys what we do can also join. This means if you are below 49+(30's-40's), and you want to improve your fitness level, or if you are NOT a "tiger," or if you enjoy our other activities listed below, then please join us. Friends and relatives are always welcome at our activities and events.

Our goal is to build and/or maintain a high level of fitness within our capacities and make good friends at the same time. (Walking is fun, but nothing beats walking with friends.)

Our activities take place around the South Bay, especially the Palos Verdes Peninsula and San Pedro.

The South Bay Walking & Hiking Group focuses on 2-4 mile walks, trail walks, and hikes at a moderate pace — with an occasional more strenuous walk thrown in for a challenge and increased fitness. We walk on sidewalks, boardwalks, and trails, wherever the journey takes us.

Our other goal is to enjoy nature and the outdoors-- the ocean, marine animals, and habitats of our area -- so we seek routes that benefit both body and soul! We also do sunset walks to admire beautiful views available in our gorgeous area at different times of the day. Often we stop at a great café or restaurant after the hikes.

The South Bay Walking & Hiking Group branches out to other activities that are all about fitness, fun, and friendship-- like kayaking, whale watching, dining, movies, and more. When there is interest, there will also be historical walks, inter-generational walks (i.e. walks with children), and dog walks.

In brief, we support each other to get and stay fit while enjoying good times together!

Please join us -- and then, if you want, take the polls (under "More"), so your preferences can become part of our planning for future activities!

By the way, we don't charge dues to have you join and enjoy our many exciting activities. You are totaly welcome to participate in our meetup for free because your participation is already a great contribution! At the same time, we gladly accept donations. It's easy to donate by using the "We Pay" tool meetup provides. Thanks for your support and WELCOME!
