General Hiking Information (must reading for 'newbies')

MEMBERSHIP: Everyone interested in hiking is welcome. Membership dues per calendar year are $5.00 for individuals and $7.00 for families. Nonmembers are invited but are assessed $2.00 per day except for guest hike leaders. All persons, regardless of age, must pay transportation costs.

RESERVATIONS: Reservations are not necessary unless the listing is preceded by a telephone symbol. Reservation trips are by private automobiles. Hikers needing transportation and drivers having room for riders should call the person taking reservations. Please call as early as possible before the trip and only between 10:00 a.m. and 9:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted. If you have made a reservation and must cancel, please notify the leader.

COSTS: The cost for an event includes a car pool fee (where applicable) paid to the drivers and a nonmember fee collected by the leader for the club. Unless otherwise noted, entrance fees and/or tolls are considered in determining the amount of the car pool fee and are paid by the drivers. For hikes that require entrance to Skyline Drive, the entrance fee is not part of the car pool fee; for each car it is shared by all passengers and the driver. In some cases, there will be no Skyline Drive entrance fee for a car that presents a park pass at the gate. Some events may offer special activities that call for additional costs. All the cost requirements of an event are identified in the schedule.

CHANGES: Normally, hikes will run as scheduled. Uncontrollable circumstances, such as bad weather or a shortage of cars, may result in a trip alteration or cancellation.

WHAT TO BRING AND WEAR: When the trip begins before noon, bring enough food and liquid for a full day's outing. It is a good idea to bring something to drink even on short hikes. Wear sensible clothing and sturdy shoes. Hiking boots are recommended on mountain hikes. Dress in layers for cold or wet weather.

RULES: Hikes are informal, but always follow the leader. Pay attention to any instructions he or she gives before or during the hike. Pets are not allowed on club outings.
