  • Dinner outings, club parties and picnics
  • Other events, including group trips throughout the US and around the world

Saturdays we aim to schedule 3 hikes with a variety of difficulty, with drive distances of 30 minutes to 3 hours. Sundays we usually schedule an easy hike with a short drive distance. You can see our upcoming events here. Members

also suggest pick-up hikes, bikes and paddles via our private Google Group.
