If you decide to join us on a trip as a guest, you will need to call the trip leader to see if the trip is still open (sometimes there are participant limits). You will also need to sign a Release of Liability form. This form can be obtained from a trip leader, or on our Membership page as part of the membership application.

Note that all of our leaders are trained in leadership, safety and first aid skills.
