This was last updated December first. Most notably: new gps coordinates and some notes at the bottom.
Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoors culture. We hike together as a group. No hiker left behind! Absolutely no diet or weight loss talk. Be mindful of gender pronouns, group dynamics, microaggressions, cultural appropriation and different physical ability levels.
Bay Area Unlikely Hikers, let’s do this! I can’t wait to meet y’all!
We’ll be doing the Sequoia Bayview Trail at Joaquin Miller Park and possibly adding another arm to it. It is just under 3.5 miles and no more than 300 feet elevation gain.
GPS coordinates for parking: https://goo.gl/maps/DE4pbGzYmmS2
Free to park, no pass necessary.
Group hang-out after hike, 12:30pm-ish! Feel free to skip the hike and just come hang out afterward! REI will be providing a few snacks & beverages. Please bring water and snacks, anyway.
This hike is #sponsored by REI!

I did the trail (12/1) and I’m STOKED for tomorrow! Some things:
-Please note the updated GPS coordinates. These are for the trailhead (we will meet there). You will have to actually park on the street nearby: https://goo.gl/maps/DE4pbGzYmmS2
-It will be busy and there will be mountain bikers.
-Our group might be HUGE
-LEAVE NO VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR. Seriously. Glass everywhere.
-The trail is a 3.4ish mile loop that ascends very gradually (prob less than 300 feet). There is one very short part that declines steeply.
-I will have bubbly water and junk food snacks for after (no one ever eats my healthy snacks so I don’t bother anymore!)
-I brought new hiking boots and stepped in a huge pile of dog shit so that you wouldn’t have to
