googling "hiking clubs Sacramento" brings up quite a few hits; some of those surely must be active. How about the Sierra Club? Nearly all clubs welcome non-members on their trips, sometimes charging a small amount and sometimes not. It's also a great way to save on gas by car-pooling.
Going with a club will be a wonderful way to meet future hiking partners for your own trips.
