  • Bay Area Ridge Trail Council
    The Ridge Trail Council is a Bay Area nonprofit organization that seeks to join all Bay Area communities with 500 miles of multiuse trails. A yearlong family membership entitles two adults and their children to benefits as stunning as the panoramic vistas of the great outdoors. With advanced registration to popular trail events such as the multi-sport Ridge to Bridge, a marathon event that includes food and water and is next scheduled for April 2011, you won't need to plaintively wander over the trail's foggy, thicketed scalper meadow when the event inevitably sells out. Trail guidebooks are included with each membership, so families can set out on precisely planned pilgrimages. Members are also admitted to member-only natural odysseys such as the Presidio Solstice Ramble, a hike each winter solstice that includes free hors d'oeuvres and beverages, which is preferable to standard solstice traditions of bearing witness to chipmunks' annual temporary powers of speech, self-awareness, and attorney. Special offers such as free event registration and gratis hiking gear are also available to members and are relayed via a biannual newsletter, Facebook, and Twitter.

  • Outdoor Adventure Club
    Richard Bothwell has hiked Mount Kilimanjaro, scaled Peru’s Cordillera Blanca, and surfed the waves of four continents. But perhaps his greatest feat was establishing the Outdoor Adventure Club in 1996, where he leads others in conquering nature's challenges. He and a staff of seasoned outdoors enthusiasts escort visitors of all fitness and experience levels in local excursions and international vacations, all centered on exploring the great outdoors. On the local level, the guides lead rock-climbing classes at Castle Rock State Park in addition to hiking, backpacking, whitewater-rafting, kayaking, and skydiving excursions. International adventure vacations expose folks to surfing in Costa Rica, rafting in Patagonia, and mountaineering in Peru. The expeditions marry the camaraderie of a social club with the expertise of professional guides, who are each trained in emergency wilderness care in case of squirrel attacks.

  • Excelsior Urban Hikes
    If you follow Excelsior Urban Hikes' resident guide Christina, it will only take you two hours to see all of San Francisco. That's because it takes two hours to hike to the top of Mount Davidson, which offers stunning views of the city, both bay bridges, and the Pacific Ocean beyond to visitors who reach its summit. Christina leads hikes down city streets and through nature trails to reveal scenic vistas. Besides Mount Davidson, she often takes groups to McLaren Park, where she points out interesting graffiti and pauses so hikers can take in views of the Outer Mission District. Christina also takes nighttime excursions to the top of Bernal Hill, where hikers can marvel at the sparkling bay lights and a lightening bug with a great stand-up routine.
