Outings

Napa outings leaders offer a wide variety of outings that are safe, fun, and inspired.
Contact the Outings Commitee if you are interested in leading an outing.

All Sierra Club trips are open to the public unless otherwise announced. You are free to bring all members of your family and guests. Children are usually welcome, but if you doubt that they are old enough to manage the trip, call the leader. (Please refer to the chart below to determine the degree of difficulty.) Our outings leaders are trained in first aid. They carry first aid kits. VISITORS ARE WELCOME.

DIFFICULTY MILEAGE ELEVATION GAIN

Sierra Club Outings are open to members and the general public. The outings leaders often have specific requirements for a particular outing; be sure to check the listing.

To participate in a Sierra Club Outing you must sign a Liability Waiver (MS-Word) (PDF). Car Pooling is encouraged to conserve resources. Such arrangements are made by the participants, who assume the risk. The Sierra Club does not insure car pooling and assumes no liability for it.
