Schedule for the 2017-2018 Season
Weekly day hikes are normally scheduled every Friday in November and March. There are two day hikes, on Tuesdays and Fridays, in December, January & February. Vans or buses leave from the parking lot two doors south of the Lending Library on Pino Suarez at 9:00 am on hike days.
To sign up for one or more of the day hikes or weekend trips listed below, go to the “Hike Sign-up” page. Follow the directions there.
Reservations are required and are accepted until midnight three days before any particular hike.
Approximately one week before the scheduled hike you will receive an e-mail containing additional information about that particular outing.
If you find you cannot make a hike you signed up for, please cancel your reservation so the group is not left waiting for you to show up at the rendezvous point on the hike day.
