Schedule

Schedule for the Winter 2016-2017 Season

Hike Sign-Up

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 Oaxaca Lending Library 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.

Since many of our hikes are “sold out,” please be sure to cancel your reservation if your plans change so that someone else will have the opportunity to take your place.
