General Outings Information: All participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver.
If you would like to read the liability waiver before you choose to participate on an outing, contact the Outings department at (415)[masked] for a printed version.
You don’t have to be a member to participate!
Arrive with adequate food, water and clothing. If in doubt about your ability to complete a hike, please consult with the leader before the trip.
Field guides, snacks to share and humor are welcome.
Please leave your pet at home unless otherwise specified or with prior approval from the leader. Entertainment devices are discouraged. Firearms are prohibited.
Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Most day trips require no advance reservations unless “reservations required” or “group size limited” is indicated.
Participants are encouraged to contribute a small donation for the outing. These optional donations help the Group Outings Program to offer professional leaders’ training courses, carbon offset contributions, and other outings activities to strengthen and diversify Columbia Group outings.
Carpooling is encouraged. Riders traditionally share expenses with drivers depending on vehicle and number of riders.
See www.trimet.org to find out how to get to the carpool location via mass transit.

Although your organizer has not sampled Raccoon Lodge’s treats, knowledgeable people swear the grub and suds are very good. As the pub’s happy hours are 4 to 6 p.m., the word to the wise is to arrive early for the best prices.
