2021 Hike and Program Schedule
(Bob Hickey, Linda Julia)
Hike Program Schedule and Updates
Hello again, hikers! It's a new year and we have a new set of hikes planned for you! Please see the attached schedule for your reference. As always, this schedule is subject to change based on weather and other unknown factors.
We will continue to honor the COVID Restrictions (as described above) for the safety of those attending and we thank you for your continued cooperation.
New this year (or back to the way it was previously if you've been hiking with us for a while), registration will open 10 days prior to the hike date, the same day you receive the hike description email. We hope this will give all individuals a fair chance to attend at least one hike throughout the season. If you are unable to attend as part of our group, or if you'd like to lead your own adventure, we encourage you to save the hike description(s) and use them to guide you.
At the request of our leaders and many of our participants, we are also making the 10 attendee limit permanent. We hope this change will continue to aid our leaders in keeping everyone safe, increase the quality of the hikes, and reduce our impact on trails and other users.
We are so glad you are interested in joining us and look forward to a great year ahead!
