This group is for the folks that live here year-round but don't find themselves getting out as much as they'd like to.  Thank you to those whom have already gone on a trip and given us some momentum to get going.  This Fall the focus will be on doing some trips to the Boulder Canyon/Battleship Mountain area via Second Water, Boulder, and Peralta trails.  Siphon Draw is a must do, and we can sprinkle in some easier ones like Hieroglyphic, and Garden Valley Loop.    With that being said if you are reading this and thinking about joining, or are already a member, this is YOUR group.  If you have an idea, or a goal, or something that you would like to see, please share your thoughts and we can all explore it together.  As I meet people in person on the trail I am adding them as "Event Coordinators".  This means that they can now post and lead their own events on this site.  The end game is that if one day you just want to go out exploring, you don't have to go by yourself.  Plan a trip or join one, and get out there. 

Hiker Responsibility Code
You are responsible for yourself, so be prepared:

1. With knowledge and gear. Become self reliant by learning about the terrain, conditions, local weather and your equipment before you start. 

2. To leave your plans. Tell someone where you are going, the trails you are hiking, when you will return and your emergency plans. 

3. To stay together. When you start as a group, hike as a group, end as a group. Pace your hike to the slowest person. 

4. To turn back. Weather changes quickly in the mountains. Fatigue and unexpected conditions can also affect your hike. Know your limitations and when to postpone your hike. The mountains will be there another day. 

5. For emergencies. Even if you are headed out for just an hour, an injury, severe weather or a wrong turn could become life threatening. Don’t assume you will be rescued; know how to rescue yourself. 

6. To share the hiker code with others. 

hikeSafe: It’s Your Responsibility.
The Hiker Responsibility Code was developed and is endorsed by the White Mountain National Forest and New Hampshire Fish and Game. 

I would like to just add... bring lots and lots of water. Two liters is a minimum for any short outing, bring more for longer excursions, and bring extra whenever possible!!!  

Have fun and be safe!!!
