Sierra Club Outings and Events
Outings are open to all members and the general public. Outings range
in difficulty from easy to very strenuous. If you are not sure, please
contact the leader to see if the hike is appropriate for you.
Transportation - The Sierra Club encourages the use of carpools
to all events. However, the Sierra Club Outings Leader cannot assign riders
or arrange carpools. Each individual is responsible for his/her own transportation
to and from the trailhead or other event area.
Suggestions - If you have suggestions for hikes or outdoor activities,
questions about the Chapter's outing policies or would like to be an outings
leader, call or email Joe Morris (805-549-0355),
or the Chapter Office at 805-543-8717. Outings Leaders please get your
hikes in by the 10th of each month for the next month's Santa Lucian.
