As of August 2021, the Sierra Club let us know we are free to start leading hikes again with the following guidelines/rules: If you are experiencing any possible COVID symptoms or are sick, you should not attend the hike or event. Masks and COVID vaccinations are not required on the hike or at events. You are welcome to wear a mask if it makes you comfortable. Keep in mind that you are potentially going to be on a trip with both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. It is your choice to attend the outing knowing this information. The number of people on a hike is limited to 10 to allow for easier social distancing among participants. Hikes will be rated as back country or front country. Back country hikes will require each participant to fill out a medical form at the start of the hike (provided by the hike leader) in order to participate in the hike. Front country hikes will operate as hikes did before the COVID pandemic.
Loma Prieta GLS is an official activity section of the Loma Prieta chapter of the Sierra Club . We offer the gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, and transgender community and their allies a variety of outdoor activities mostly located on the Peninsula or in the South bay. We encourage participation in the Sierra Club's mission to explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the earth.
