Hike rating codes consist of three parts: PACE, TERRAIN, MILEAGE - followed by a committee designation, see below. Pace 1 Leisurely (nature walk, window shopping pace) 2 Moderate (steady, comfortable pace) 3 Vigorous (brisk, firm pace) 4 Fast 5 Very Fast Terrain A Solid pavement/sidewalk B Soft ground/sand/carriage trails C Hiking trails & gentle rolling hills D Steep hills, scrambles possible E Rough terrain/exposure and/or thick brush possible F Extremely difficult terrain/possible sustained exposure Mileage: estimated mileage of the hike. 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.
