Our team of volunteers

David Hay
Heart of this Operation

Dave’s is the social butterfly. He doesn’t actually know anything about nature; he’s just in it for the picnics and-- oh look a squirrel!

Giuzmelk Russo
Outdoor Enthusiast

Giuzmelk is the girl that keeps everything together. Seriously, she’s a genius at this stuff, we bet she talks hiking in her sleep.

Ryan Rosas
Photo Dude

Rosas isn’t so into the big, heart-thumping hikes. He’s more the laid back surfer naturalist type. But we drag him along anyway so he can take our photos for us. We’re not always sure his smoker’s lungs can handle it… but the pictures are pretty, right?

Ei Rene
Volunteer Extraordinaire

Accountant by day, Wonder Woman by week-end. Don’t let the unassuming, number-cruncher in the corner mislead you; she’s a paddle-boarding, sky-diving outdoors bad@*$.

Objectives of SanDiegoHikers.com?

  1. To create a free resource where San Diego Hikers can find maps, trail info, photo’s and reviews
  2. To promote, organise and conduct caravan rallies, picnics, entertainment and other functions for the enjoyment of Club members.
  3. To promote a responsible attitude towards the preservation of San Diego’s natural resources
  4. To establish and promote a community where information and idea’s can be easily exchanged

When Dave, one of our founding members, first started hiking in San Diego in 2005, there weren’t a whole lot of resources. Searches for in-depth trail information were often ended in frustration; every site wanted you to join or sign up in exchange for relatively generic and useless data. So he created a list of trails to which he added his own personal notes. Over time, his collection of notes became far more informative and comprehensive than anything his internet searches came up with.

So he turned those notes into a website and integrated Google maps and images to create the first completely free internet resource for hiking in San Diego County.

This is an interactive site; we became as big as we are because of you. Send us suggestions and post comments, please! We love that stuff. We also post events (such as organized hikes, picnics, and other functions) and updates frequently, so come back soon.
