Hiking for Health with the South Coast Striders

The South Coast Striders is a hiking group which plans and delivers free hikes in cooperation with the Bay Area Hospital, and the Coos County Women's Health Coalition.  We are just a bunch of hikers who hike regularly and welcome others to come along.


If you are new to hiking with us (or just want to refresh yourself), check out the New Participants' Guide and "Things you should consider before you begin hiking."
