Outings List

Note: Following each outing description is a “level-of-difficulty” rating: 1=easy to 4=strenuous. This indicates roughly how difficult an outing is likely to be. If in doubt about your skills or endurance, explore plans with the trip leader first. 

In order to participate on one of the Sierra Club’s outings, you will need to sign a liability waiver.
