Group hike & trail clean-up – LOS ANGELES, CA – 12/14

RSVP on form below for full info on hike (terrain details, meet-up spots and time). Expect response e-mail within a few days. RSVPs close at 6pm the day before the hike.

Unlikely Hikers is creating supportive, intentional, body-positive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoor culture (people of color, people of size, trans, queer and beyond). We hike together slowly 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.

People of all genders welcome!

This special event is in collaboration with The Grounds Keepers and Granite Gear! We will be collecting trash as we hike and connecting over ways we can leave the places we hike at better than how we found them. There will be awesome prizes and refreshments at the end. And swag! You know you love swag.

LOCATION: Earnest E. Debs Regional Park

TIME: 10am

TRAIL STATS: about 4 miles, under 500 feet of elevation gain. We’ll be doing a variation of this trail: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/wild-mustard-loop

Dogs & kids are welcome. Please care for your dogs properly and disclose any special info about them so we can all respect boundaries. I can’t promise kid-appropriate conversations within a group of mostly adults.

BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES:

We want you to to have the most fun and supportive experience possible! Ask yourself, “how does my body like to hike?” No hike is “one size fits all” and choosing the wrong trail could potentially harm you. What is your ideal mileage? Elevation gain? Feel free to ask any questions if you don’t know what some of this means. Beginners are so welcome! xo
