ABOUT THE EVENT: Every so often, we like to meet with our hikers outside of the hiking scene to get to share hiking tips, give you information about LATH, hear your fun hiking stories and have a great time seeing everybody in their casual everyday clothes (non-hiking attire). And, if you’re new to the group, this is a great starting place to get to know what the LA Trail Hikers are all about. We’ll be answering general questions about the group, type of hikes we do, recommend and talk about hiking equipment, and anything else you wanted to know about regarding hiking with us. It’ll be just the right place to tell us about any future hikes you might want the group to consider doing. And, it’s always fun to see friendly faces outside of their normal hiking attire. If you’re new to the group, or are considering joining us for a hike, this is a great opportunity for you to meet with current hikers and hike leads to get information and an idea of what it’s really like to be out on the hikes we do. Any other ideas, comments, or suggestions will be welcome. We’ll tell you how you can Rediscover Los Angeles!
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: All new, potential, and current hikers are encouraged to attend. This event is quite social and everyone tends to have a great time sharing stories and advice. It will really get new or upcoming hikers well prepared for a LATH hike. And, it will keep regular hikers informed with up-to-date information.

MEETING VENUE: We’ll get together at Holy Grounds Coffee & Tea, in El Sereno (East Los Angeles), at 7:00pm to 9:00pm. This will be our first time being hosted at by this coffee house. They’ve been generous enough to save us a section of their outdoor patio for our event and in return it would be great if you support their small business by purchasing a drink or food item. All members/fans of LA Trail Hikers, first-time hikers, and those simply interested in hiking are welcome to join in on this event. We hope to see you there!
