Current Outings

The Sierra Club was formed by John Muir, and others of similar passion, to take people outdoors, “up into the mountains, to hear their good tidings.”  The best way to get people involved in the never ending job of protecting our wild places is still to get them outdoors - to see, smell, taste, sense, and feel nature - mild and harsh - all of it.  Only by truly feeling for the land can we fully appreciate it.

The diversity of the outings program includes easy hikes in local parks, hiking, canoeing, backpacking, cross-country skiing, camping, wildflower stalking, birding, wilderness trips, and more. The programs are designed to attract everyone to at least one activity each year. We do ask for a $1 donation per person on day hikes to help offset our committee expenses; weekend outings are more – contact the trip leader for cost details.

NOTE: All participants in Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. It is recommended that you read the liability waiver before participating in an outing.  

Outings codes: [C] Conservation; [E] educational; [R] - Restaurant Stop; [T] Trail Work; and [W] - Weather permitting, call if questionable.

For more information about a particular outing, please contact the Leader associated with the outing.
