The Loma Prieta Sierra Singleaires
from the Executive Committee writes; "The Sierra Singleaires are a friendly,
active group of 50+ year olds who enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking
and biking, as well as a variety of social and cultural activities
throughout the year. We also offer ski trips to Banff, mule trips in the
Sierras, and outings to huts and hostels. We usually have two hikes on Sundays,
one "easy" (less than five miles), and one that is more difficult, which
are followed by a potluck at a member's home. We are an activity section
of the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club, and all of our leaders are
trained and certified by the Sierra Club. Please go to the activity page
to see the current schedule of outings. Everyone who qualifies, is welcome to join
