I live in the Los Angeles area and I was wondering if you can recommend a good hiking group. I love long strenuous hikes, at least 10 - 12 miles. I belong to a group right now but most of the people in the group doesn’t want to do a long hike. I am interested in either finding a group that does these types of hikes or finding a hiking partner. I am a woman (in my mid 50’s but very fit) and I don’t mind having a male hiking partner. I know there are meet up groups but most of those groups seem to have a different purpose. I just want to do long hikes and find a group or an individual who likes to do the same thing. Thanks in advance for your help.
Once the pandemic has cleared you'd be welcome to hike with us, LA Trail Hikers. We cover a range of difficulties, including peaks and other treks. I've been doing 7-12 mile segments of the Backbone Trail this year, usually with 1-5 others.
@jldejesus7 - I'm looking for the same thing! I'm a woman in my early 40s... Most of my friends can't do someone of that length and the different groups (like LA Trail Hikers) seem to have postponed everything post covid. But I'm happy to hike with a mask on. Let me know if you found anything or interested in scheduling something!
