Gear Information

Please remember we are a social hiking group that values fellowship and camaraderie and practice good hike etiquette . We take breaks as necessary and have at least one guide in the front in addition to a "sweeper" in the back which helps ensure that no hiker is left behind. If you get upset because someone has to rest at the top of a hill etc. then find another group! We are very supportive, encouraging, and focus on safety while getting or staying fit on the trail and practicing Leave No Trace outdoor ethics.

Holiday Hike Note

Please note that our holiday and holiday weekend hikes are not refundable due to too many people backing out of the hike at the last minute before the refund cut-off. Sorry, but this is the only way to help make sure that there is a good turnout and our leaders not offer to lead a hike on their holiday in vain...or we will be all become burned enough that we will no longer offer them. Since we have made holiday hikes non-refundable it has boosted attendance rate significantly and often have perfect attendance. Thanks so much for your understanding and I look forward to seeing you out on the trail soon.

Fido is Welcome on this Hike!

    Doctor gave me instructions not to do anything more strenuous than a moderate walk because of my neck. Damn I was looking forward to this. I hope someone takes my spot.

    Any chance this hike will be increased to more than 15 hikers ? I'm on the waiting list but just thought I'd ask . . .
