IMPORTANT NEW INFO FOR CHC HIKERS: COVID Safety, Sign Ups, Carpools, etc.

*** RAIN, SNOW, ICE, HIGH WINDS, FIRE, LOW/HIGH TEMPERATURES CANCEL HIKES ***

BEWARE: TICKS  |  MURDER HORNETS  ******

Dear Hik­ing Friends:

READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR OUR HIKES:

(Due to the lim­it­ed space in each Hike, this is being sent direct­ly to every member)

»»»If you are not feel­ing well, please stay home and get better.

GROUP SIZE will be lim­it­ed to a final 25 for now. Only show up if you signed up and are on the Meet­Up “Attend­ing” list. We will turn away Unreg­is­tered or Wait List­ed hik­ers at the trail­head, so do not embar­rass your­self! Meet­Up moves you up off the WAIT LIST to “Attend­ing” auto­mat­i­cal­ly when some­one drops out, so check back before hike day. Reg­is­trants, PLEASE respect those on the Wait List by can­cel­ing your RSVP if your plans change. Hik­ers who reg­is­ter but have a trend of “No shows” will be dropped from membership.

The club and its lead­ers will no longer orga­nize CARPOOLS for lia­bil­i­ty rea­sons. Net­work with fel­low hik­ers and use Meet­Up Mes­sag­ing (see Meet­Up link above) to help coor­di­nate car­pools. We pro­vide direc­tions to the trail head.

NO PLUS 1’s. Due to the lim­it­ed num­ber of hik­ing spots, and the need for each per­son to read and under­stand the safe­ty rules, please have your guest sign up as a mem­ber of our club, there is no fee.

Every­one needs to sign a WAIVER/ SIGN IN SHEET at the trail­head before hik­ing and sign out after, so we know you have returned.

Prac­tice PHYSICAL DISTANCING (i.e. a trekking pole apart) at the trail­head, when snack­ing as a group and along the trail. Bring a Mask, in case you can­not avoid being close to oth­ers or need to help some­one. Respect oth­ers’ space and if you can­not, wear a mask that cov­ers your nose and mouth. Unvac­ci­nat­ed peo­ple must wear a face cov­er­ing out­doors when­ev­er Phys­i­cal Dis­tanc­ing (PD) is not possible.

We are not mon­i­tor­ing VACCINATION sta­tus. If you are uncom­fort­able with oth­ers’ PD, polite­ly let them know or wear a mask. Vac­ci­na­tion is encour­aged but vac­ci­na­tion debates are not – we are here to hike!

KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS. Read­ing the Hike Descrip­tion, Hike Rat­ing of Dif­fi­cul­ty and the Lead­er’s notes on what to bring. Decide if you are capa­ble of com­plet­ing the hike. If in doubt, ask the Leader using Meet Up Messaging.

Thank you for your under­stand­ing and will­ing­ness to help us all be as safe as pos­si­ble on the trail.
