What we're about
Red Rock Hiking Group: What we do
We're a hiking group based out of Southwest Utah. Our hikes typically are 3-7 miles, with no more than 2000 feet of climb at most, usually less. Very often we hike entirely cross-country, but we avoid technical, equipment-assisted hikes. It's all about being a big strong kid and having a nice ramble in the Big Blue Room.
We will try to make the hike descriptions as direct and accurate as possible, but it is up to the individual to know their limits, and choose hikes that are within their hiking level.
Check out the "Pages" for hike ratings (https://www.meetup.com/Red-Rock-Hiking/about/) explained and other goodies for hiking.
As trail organizers, we are here to make sure everyone is guided on the particular trail and is accounted for in general. We all come onto the trail together, and we all leave together. Hiking with us is like hiking with friends. When we’re on trail, we work as a team, and never leave anyone behind. If we notice people are getting too far ahead or behind, we make sure we stop regularly, regroup, and continue on trail together. In the end, we are a hiking group, and while it is ultimately up to the individual to keep oneself safe, it is up the group to stay together.
In order to keep up the maintenance of the site and other expenses, we request a suggested donation of $1 per hike which you can offer to your event host, who may or may not accept it, up to them. Or you can donate thru the "Chip In!" link on the left column as you desire up to as much as you want to annually, and that helps cover the cost of the site and time for organizer's prep.
