  • Your info

A group hike leader is…

  • Punctual, friendly & sociable – Arrives on time and makes everyone feel welcome, included, and a part of the hike / conversation.
  • Responsive – Responds to Meetup.com comments and messages.

A group hike leader takes safety and navigation seriously and…

  • Takes photos at the event and posts them afterwards
  • Reports any member or event issues to [email protected]
  • Brings at least one map of the route pre-printed on paper for each cluster of hikers so it can be shared.

Important

  • No limits will be placed on attendance for general hikes.
  • If more than 25 geeks show up to hike, split the group into two with a captain for each group. (Groups of 15ish)
  • Distribute groups evenly (counting off is a good way). Groups should not be split based on skill level.
  • Request that all hikers stop at every trail junction to meet up.
  • Make sure that the same number of people that go on the trail, get off the trail.
