Sierra Club trips are open to the public unless otherwise noted. You're free to bring family  members and guests. Children are usually welcome; if you're not sure they're old enough, call the leader.

Outings start no later than 15 minutes after scheduled meeting time. The leader is in charge of the trip and is responsible for your welfare and the good name of the Club. Leaders need your cooperation to make the trip safe, pleasant and rewarding.

Please don't charge ahead of the leader, and keep within sight or shouting distance of the person ahead of you so you don't miss an intersecting trail. Do not lag behind the rear leader, who will stay behind to help you if needed. Please do not leave the group without letting the leader know you're going.

Bring lunch, cup and liquids. Be sure your shoes are adequate, well broken in, and preferably low-heeled and with high tops.

Guard against fire danger: Do not smoke on trails. Build fires only with the leader's permission, and extinguish them completely. Do not bring guns, pets, or radios on hikes. Binoculars and digital cameras are encouraged, however!

Carpools are not part of the outing but are encouraged. We suggest a 20-cents-per-mile compensation be paid to the driver you ride with.
