Our Hiking Trips

Explore the best trails in the Bay Area with the Outdoor Adventure Club

Guided hikes. Lunch on the trail. A fun group to hike with.

Since 1996, the Outdoor Adventure Club has been offering guided day hikes all over the Bay Area. Our guides are professionally trained and certified as Wilderness First Reponders and enjoy sharing their love of hiking with others. On our hikes, your Outdoor Adventure Club guide will show you the way, keep the conversation going, and serve up a great OAC lunch on the trail.

We offer day hikes almost every weekend throughout the year all over the Bay Area, from Pt. Reyes in the North Bay to Ohlone Wilderness in the East Bay, to Big Basin on the Peninsula to Henry Coe in the South Bay and to the Santa Cruz Mountains. If you are looking to explore the best hiking spots in the Bay Area, we’ve got it covered. Our hikes range from easy/moderate to difficult and distances vary from 6 to 12 miles, so you are sure to find a hike (or two) that suits your needs and fitness level.

Included on our hikes:

  • Professional guide, certified as a Wilderness First Responder
  • A map of the area
  • A light lunch served on the trail (we can accommodate special diets)
  • A great group of people to meet and hike with
  • Carpool lists so you can arrange rides to the hike

If you love to hike like we do, join us for a hiking and camping weekend adventure in some of the greatest places on earth, Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Park, and Pinnacles National Park.

Meet new friends, explore the trails with experienced guides and make every weekend count!
