“The mountains are calling and I must go." -- John Muir
This group is for anyone who is interested in hiking, backpacking, trekking, ice and rock climbing, snowboarding, skiing, cross-country skiing, mountaineering, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, rafting and other outdoor adventures.
The plan is to organize at least one overnight outing per month. Some of of our multi-day backpacking, hiking trips are strenuous and you need to be physically prepared and have appropriate hiking or backpacker's gear for the trips.
Please use Message Boards for Tips, Discussions or to find Hiking, Climbing, backpacking or other activity partners. You can also find useful info on hiking, climbing, skiing or other outdoor activities in the Files section.
Occasionally, we will also meet up off mountain to socialize and dream up our next adventures.
WE ARE NOT PAID PROFESSIONAL GUIDES AND LEADERS.
