Details

The goal is to get new members comfortable with the trip sign-up and trip-taking process. We will answer new members' practical questions and can talk as you wish about pace, clothing, gear, etc.



I'll write you with a weather forecast the day before. Do not assume bad weather means the trip is canceled. We only cancel if the roads are treacherous. We just try to dress appropriately.



Please bring those of the 10 Essentials [ https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/ten-essentials.html] appropriate to a mountain hike:  Wear proper hiking boots, sunglasses and sunscreen, a hat, a personal first aid kit, nutrition items, and plenty of water. Rain jacket with hood is a year-round pack item. 



Traction devices, such as Microspikes, will be necessary as the trail could be icy. (We recommend you always carry them in your pack from late fall through early summer.)



Part of the trail is steep, so bring hiking poles if you use them. If you have never used hiking poles, I have a few to loan, if you'd like to try them.



No jeans or cotton clothing. We can talk more about all that on trip day.



NO Dogs, please. Look for designated "Doggie Hikes" on the calendar.



Let me know of any medical conditions that might affect you on the hike.
