  • This location is shown only to members

Do not RSVP No – I only need to know if you are attending. 

Please take time to read all information below before signing up.

Please be courtesies regarding your No Show(s). Participants are waiting for you at the trailhead and in some cases you offer and arrange ride and will not show up.  Having said that; if you have more than two no shows I will put you on the waiting list. Late cancellation or No Show would make the event organizer and other participants not happy. If you cancel after RSVP is closed you will be marked as No Show. Anyone who consistently double books on my hikes will be moved to the waiting list.

Trips are dependent on weather conditions and for that reason the morning of the trip please check the website to make sure the event is not cancelled. 


Our pace will be relaxed; it will not be a race. Please be realistic about your abilities, you must be able to commit to the entire event.   Only sign up if you are willing to stick together and hike as a group. No beginners.
