Cathleen @_catflores_ #GirlsWhoHikeLA I'm Cathy, currently living in Costa Mesa. I work for the City of Long Beach but spend most of my spare time on mountain trails. I'm a proud dog mom of a handsome 4 year old morkie named Grizzy. Favorite place has to be Yosemite. Looking forward to meeting other women who hike.

Sarah - Moderator @sarahmcarnold #GirlsWhoHikeLA My name is Sarah, and my husband and I love hiking! A few years ago I started trail running as a way to lose weight, and I gained a new love and lost a lot of lbs (135 lbs actually over the course of 1.5 years). I'm currently working on conquering the 6-pack with my husband, but our big dream/what we're working towards is knocking out the PCT and AT.

Tiffany @followtiffsjourney #GirlsWhoHikeLA #GirlsWhoHikeOC I'm just a SoCal born and raised girl who's found a love for the mountains. Hiking is not just a trend to me, it is a lifestyle; it keeps me sane and healthy- it's my therapy. As Gerard Way puts it, "one day your life will flash before your eyes... make sure it's worth watching."

Allyson @soshewandered #GirlsWhoHikeLA Many things can be said about Allyson. She sneaks whiskey on long hikes, will always have a "that's what she/he said" joke hidden behind her tongue and have the next adventurous quest created before the first one's over. Her passionate lust for the zealous adventures of life have carried her to Los Angeles from Washington State, careering as showroom director for a custom hardwood flooring company in Beverly Hills.

Ashley @heytherebuddybear #GirlsWhoHikeLA A native of South Florida, Ashley packed up and moved to Los Angeles in 2013 specifically to broaden her adventurous horizon. As a young girl camping, she would constantly get in trouble for wandering off into the brush and woods alone, and not much has changed today! She has since developed a great love for backpacking and will begin training for longer trips and further developing back-country skills that she can share and teach to others. Ashley's other loves include her pups, Buddy (the elf) & Ricky Bobby, and hitting the off-road trails in her FJ Cruiser.
