Hiking Rules

  • No pets are allowed.
  • No electronic devices with headphones are allowed. Only relevant electronic equipment (i.e. walkie-talkies, satellite phones, GPS) for safety purposes and/or hike details are allowed. Personal cellphones should be turned off during hikes.
  • No alcohol or smoking is allowed on hikes. Social gatherings after a hike may include alcohol, at the hiker's discretion.
  • It is the responsibility of each member to check with the website prior to a hike for any updates. Where specified in the Hike Schedule, members are required to preregister by phone with the hike coordinator.
  • Car-pooling is encouraged on hikes. Each passenger is requested to offer to compensate the driver for his/her operating expenses, regardless of the number of passengers in the vehicle. Drivers are compensated on a sliding scale, based on gas prices at the pump (see Member Guidelines and Car-pooling policy).
