What we're about

CCOHAB is a social, non-professional, hiking group for people of all backgrounds, aged 18 and over who want to share in the enjoyment of the outdoors.

We know and practice the leave no trace principles on every trip. https://lnt.org/why/7-principles

The group is maintained and organized by fellow volunteer hikers. We are not a singles group.

To maintain awareness of one another (safety) and to help mitigate impact on trails we hike in small groups. As a member, you’re expected to: 1) Follow all safety requests from organizers, 2) Be aware and respectful of your fellow hikers, and 3) understand and practice “Leave No Trace” principals during hikes with the group.

As a courtesy, scheduled hikes may provide detailed descriptions including difficulty level, mileage, elevation and other important hiking information to consider. Some trips may be at a fast pace over difficult terrain some may be slow and flat. If you require more clarification or have any specific concerns about a particular trip, it is your responsibility to contact the hike organizer with any questions you may have.

We believe in the “no hiker left behind”, principle. That said, in consideration of your fellow hikers, we emphasize the importance of knowing your own hiking abilities/limitations and understanding whether or not any given trip is appropriate for you. For example: If the pace for a 7 mile trip is described as approximately 2.5mph, the participants expect to be able to be done with their hike and go on about their day within 3-3.5 hours, not 7 hours. Likewise, if a five pace is too slow for you, you may find yourself feeling frustrated at having to keep that pace.

Since this is a-meet-in-person group, your profile should be a photo that clearly shows your face and at least a first name. You will not be permitted on a hike otherwise.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY: Hiking, water activities, and all outdoor events are rewarding and pleasant activities in nature, but there are certain dangers you should be aware of. Those include, but are not limited to, trip and fall injuries, Acute Mountain Sickness, drowning, poison oak exposure, bee stings, tick, snake bites and etc. By signing up and/or attending any meetup on this group you and your guest(s) assume the risks of the trip/activities and agree to release CCOHAB, hike organizer, other volunteers and anyone associated/related to this meetup group from any claims for any injuries or other losses sustained during any of the hikes and activities. If you are bringing a guest(s), it is your responsibility to inform and confirm with him/her of this liability agreement.

-COVID19: vaccinated or not, if you're respectful of others safety, peace of mind as well as their choices, your welcome on trips. Vaxed or not, if you're not feeling well please stay home. And for now, it's still a good idea to keep hand sanitizer handy. I'll be fully vaxed but will still have a mask handy for the unlikely circumstance or emergency where I or a trailmate may need medical attention and we have to be very close. Please consider doing the same.
