What we're about

WELCOME!
The Wasatch Hiking and Outdoors Meetup is a group of people that love to hike with others! We feature hikes for all skill levels, road trips, camping, and social gatherings. We have events throughout the Wasatch Front, including Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, & Utah counties and further! We even hike at night!

KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
Our Organizers are NOT tour guides, we are NOT rangers. Going out with us is the same as going out with a few friends. Expect the same risks, and PLEASE take the same precautions. As Organizers, we will do our best to give accurate descriptions of the hikes we post. If you are a beginning hiker, a hike's elevation and distance may not mean much to you. Likewise, difficulty ratings are subjective, and a hike that is Easy for one person, may be Moderate to another. Err on the side of caution. You're much better off going on a hike that's too easy for you than a hike that's too hard or too dangerous for you. As you go on more hikes with us, you'll become more familiar with our ratings and our descriptions, and you'll learn more about your own limits. Ultimately, it's up to you to keep yourself SAFE out there. You are an adult. Hike within your abilities.

DUES/FEES
There are no membership dues to be a part of this group. However, Meet-up charges organizers about $180/year. If you appreciate our group, please consider donating a monitary token of your appreciation by clicking on the "Chip In" button.

To learn more about the group, BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR "ABOUT" PAGE. That's also where you'll find our FAQ and Hiking Etiquette pages.

$150 Limited Canoe Trip Down Green River to Mineral bottom

Needs a location

$150.00

It may be difficult to get on this list. We have limits because of equipment and logistics. Also, due to expense and amount of planning and the fact that once we start, we can no longer back out. Only those who have proven themselves on other hikes and those who get the chance to pay a non-refundable deposit will be allowed on this adventure. More information including cost will be posted later.

Here are a few things we do know:
1. Each vessel will need to be self reliant (You must carry your own stuff)
2. We will do our own shuttle (Day before we get on the water)
3. Each person needs a dry bag. If you do not have one, you could buy one. I found good options at great prices at Recreation Outlet 3160 South State Street. If you would rather, you could rent one where we are getting our canoes for $8 small or $15 large. Assume that anything not in a dry bag will get wet.

Cost: $150.00 (Must be paid before spot is secured. $25 of this is a donation and not refundable. $125 could be refunded if a replacement is found who will pay it or if the funds are not already used or needed to avoid costing others more)

Payment Includes: Gas, Canoe & Vehicle Shuttle, Camping & Launch Fees
Payment Does Not Include: Meals, Snacks, or Gear
