Southern California Naturist Association, Family-Friendly Nude Recreation
Welcome to the Southern California Naturist Association

SCNA is a clothing-optional travel club. We are a group of nudists and like-minded friends in the Greater Los Angeles area with no specific park or resort to call home. That frees us to explore the many opportunities for recreation and socializing that are available in our warm, beautiful region.

Within these pages you may encounter pictures of normal people just like you having fun camping, hiking, boating, and such, except they are doing so without the restriction of clothing. This website reflects our family-friendly orientation and illustrates the fun activities that we enjoy. It also has many articles and links that are excellent resources for expanding one’s understanding of nudism in America and world-wide.

If you are under age or otherwise not permitted to view frontal nudity in your home or community, please leave this site now. If you are looking for sexual content, or photos of children, you have definitely come to the wrong place!

Bare to Breakers 12K Run

This scheduled event is in the past.

Sunday, May 21, 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Location:

San Francisco

There are restrictions on public nudity in San Francisco, but it is legal to run nude in the annual Bay-to-Breakers race as long and you are not exhibiting any lewd behavior. Many nudists co-mingle each year with the thousands of other runners and crazies costumed (or body painted) in everything imaginable.

This is not an SCNA event. We post this notice as a courtesy to our members and other web site visitors who might like to attend (and run naked through a city!)

Nudists should visit the Bare to Breakers website www.baretobreakers.com for detailed advice for participating.

In past years, Lupin Lodge in Los Gatos has provided a shuttle to take nudists to the race and back again, since driving in SF is so insane. Lupin has also provided a weekend accomodation special for B2B weekend. We will post an update here when we can confirm their plans for 2017. Anyone interested may call Lupin’s office at (408) 353-9200.
