hike schedule

How to register for a hike:

  1. Call or email the hike leader to sign up for a hike.  If the leader is confident that you are able to do the hike, the leader will give you the hike meetup location and other instructions.
  2. If you have not hiked with the leader before, please call rather than email the leader.
  3. Phone leaders no earlier than 9 am and no later than 6 pm.
  4. To cancel after signing up, call or email the leader at least the day before the hike.
  5. Note that some hikes have a maximum participant limit and that there are varying time deadlines for signing up. 
  6. If you are a passenger carpooling to a trailhead, please pay the driver 10 cents per mile to cover gas, etc.
  7. HIKING BOOTS WITH GOOD TREAD AND ADEQUATE DRINKING WATER ARE REQUIRED. 
    Hats and sunscreen are strongly recommended. 
CAREFULLY REVIEW THE TEN ESSENTIALS    |   Thank you and Happy Hiking.  ►

  • Moderate hikes = (0 - 500 feet, 4-7 miles)
  • Strenuous hikes = (500 – 1,800 feet, 6 – 10 miles)
  • Extremely Difficult: = More than 1800 ft. of elevation gain and more than 10 miles in length.

    The above are general guidelines.  A hike leader may deviate when, for example, a hike has difficult footing or involves climbing boulders.
