All hikers hike at their own risk. Hikers must sign a waiver accepting that risk. All hikers must wear appropriate footwear and clothing, carry sufficient water and food and be prepared for changes in weather. Hikers are expected to learn the hikes, prepare the hikes and to lead hikes. All hikers must stay behind the hike coordinator and in front of the appointed-tail-end person.
Tuesday hikes are the hardest and usually demand a high level of fitness. Tuesday hikes involve considerable elevation gains and are often quite long.
Thursday Plus hikes are also physically demanding. Thursday Plus hikes are slower paced that the Tuesday hikes but may still involve considerable elevation gains and are often quite long.
Thursday hikes are not as difficult as the other two.
If you are in doubt about a hike, contact the Hike Coordinator.
Occasional guests are welcome provided that the host is sure the hike is within their capability and that they have adequate footwear. The host must get permission from the hike coordinator to bring along a guest. Hosts are totally responsible for the conduct of their guests.
We produce a seasonal hiking schedule, which describes each hike, its difficulty, the meeting place, the hike coordinatorâs name and contact information.
