Paid up members will be given preference on this hike. If you have not paid your dues yet, you could potentially be bumped from this hike and/or wait listed to make room for a paid member. Many of your fellow hikers have paid their $15 yearly dues that support our activities (including the cost of this site). Our hike leaders are volunteers and do not get paid. Please keep this in mind when you RSVP. Thank you.
RSVPS: Please change your RSVP as soon as you know you can't make it. Failure to do so means someone else might not be able to hike. Thanks! If you RSVP for a hike with a waiting list, but are a no show, you may be moved to the waiting list for the next hike you join. Members who continually sign up and unsign up before a hike will be moved to the waiting list. You will receive no other notice and we will not email you before you are wait listed.
