What we're about

Friends and members of the Sierra Club,

Thank you for choosing to join us on one of our outings - a 100+ year tradition of the Sierra Club! For many decades, volunteers of our local group, the Great Basin Group, have lead outings throughout the region. Areas of the region include the greater Reno area, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and the vast interior of the state of Nevada.

We are not "just another Meetup group". The Sierra Club has been in existence for over 125 years. Our mission is to "Explore, enjoy, and protect the planet". Our volunteer outings leaders will, at a minimum, have basic first aid training and go through a mentoring process with veteran outings leaders before becoming outings leaders themselves. That is the minimum that you can expect. Many of our outings leaders will have decades of experience leading outings in our region and have many wonderful outdoor secrets to share with you!

Almost all trips posted on this website are Sierra Club outings - all participants must sign a Sierra Club Sign-in Sheet and Liability Waiver ( at the trailhead before we begin each outing. If you have any question about the difficulty of the outing and whether you have the appropriate fitness, and/or equipment to participate, contact the outing leader before the day of the outing. During the outing, expect to remain with the outings leader during the entire outing, unless there is a co-leader (this is for safety and liability reasons). If you plan on bringing a dog, please ask the outing leader of the trip for permission and special instructions before the day of the outing.

You do not have to be a Sierra Club member to participate in our outings.

All participants will be asked to donate $1 to the Sierra Club Great Basin Group every time they join us for an outing to fund our outings leader training programs.
