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. Hike participants will rendezvous at the Lending Library at 519 Pino Suarez at 8:45 AM to check in and board vans for a 9 o’clock departure.
Reservations are required for all hikes and weekend trips, as we must make appropriate arrangements for transportation. Reservations for day hikes are accepted until midnight three days before any given hike; those for weekend trips should be made a minimum of one week ahead. Reservations may be made online at the Lending Library’s “Online Store”, which can be accessed at https://www.oaxlibrary.org/online-store by clicking the appropriate button on the menu bar at the top of the home page. Follow the directions posted there. Reservations may also be made in person at the circulation desk at the Library. All reservations must be paid for at the time they are registered. Refunds for day hikes can be requested for cancellations made a minimum of 48 hours before the hike date. Refunds for weekend trips can be given for cancellation notices given at least one week before the scheduled outing, due to the lead time in making reservations for accommodations.
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.
