Committee Designations: "(H)" following the code indicates a Hiking Committee event. "(W)" following the code indicates a Walks & Outings event. "(YM)" following the code indicates a Young Members event. The leader may modify or cancel a hike due to weather, trail conditions, or any other reason deemed prudent for the safety of the group. Rating codes are intended as a general guide only. We strive for accuracy & consistency, but cannot guarantee them. If you have concerns relating to your safety or enjoyment, please discuss them with the leader in advance.
