After the hike
Hikers who experience COVID-19 symptoms following a organized hike must inform their local public health unit. Public Health will be responsible for contact tracing. I will have a contact tracing form available for each hike that I can share with Public Health.

All hikers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the hike.
Most of our hikes will be loops or in and backs, however carpooling may be necessary for linear hikes.
Safety is our top priority, we respect and understand that some members may not be comfortable carpooling.
Linear hikes needed shuttles will be noted in the hike descriptions. (e.g. Grand Valley E2E's)
If you are comfortable sharing your vehicle, facemasks should be worn to protect each member.
Hikes vary in difficulty. In each hike description, you'll find important pieces of information - about distance, pace, and terrain - to help you determine if that particular hike is right for you. To participate in an organized hike, you need to be able to complete the specified length of the hike on your own or with your own support person within the time allowed.
Hike Difficulty Ratings have been standardized across most of the hiking clubs:
