Top Hiking Trails in Bay Area

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” Inspired by John Muir, I organized a hiking group from June 2015 in the San Francisco Bay Area via Wechat.

Now there is more than 1000 hikers in my group. We hike almost every Saturday. The posts on this website are our memories for each hike.

We completed hiking at Half Dome in Yosemite National Park in June and July 2016 with 5 permits (30 people in total). In 2017, one of our big goals is to try Rim 2 Rim in Great Canyon.

Welcome to hike with us!
