Level of skills:

We encourage members to participate in city events prior to a backcountry for physical and mental conditioning, and when testing new gear. These events prepare us for day hikes and backpacking. As a result, most out-of-city events requires an intermediate skill level as we traverse challenging terrain such as hills, forested areas, and long distances.

Difficulty Break-Down:

  • Novice: Flat terrain with little to no obstacles;
  • Intermediate: Few obstacles, terrain may be uneven with elevation;
  • Advanced: More than half the outing will have rugged terrain with obstacles.


Please understand these are group events, which means you must stay with the group, look out for each other's well being and participate.
