Explore The Outdoor Nation At A Nature Loving, Slow Poke Pace

Welcome to Lazy Ass Hiking. My name is James and I invite you to join me and my friends as we hike, walk and explore the Outdoor Nation and other cool places around the Southern California area, at a nature loving, slow poke pace. Sure, we sometimes venture out of SoCal and even do the harder, pain and suffering type hikes now and then. The main thing is we usually have fun and I'll tell you all about it right here, so you can check out the same places and have your own adventures. Check out the latest posts below, or go the Hikes page for a convenient list of all the hikes featured here along with a few hike stats. Feel free to leave comments and suggestions.
