The Singleaires standard activity is hiking. We have over 137 different local hikes in the bay area, which we hike. Sunday is reserved for our regular scheduled hike. Refer to the Chapter Calendar for all of our hikes and directions.
Singleaire hikes are for anybody who is capable of hiking the distance as described. It is up to the person who wants to hike to determine their own ability and limits. The Hike Leader will monitor and evaluate a hikers ability and may or may not ask the hiker to leave the hike if it appears it may be a problem for the hiker or the group.
All hikers are required to sign in on a liability waiver.
Hike Leaders and Co-Leaders
Our leaders and co-leaders are volunteers and they expect your cooperation
for a safe and enjoyable hike. The leader is responsible for your
safety, and you are expected to cooperate with the leader's decisions.
All hikes also have a "rear leader" (aka sweep) to keep the group together. If you
leave the hike, you need to inform either the leader or rear leader and
sign out on the Liability Waiver. A current First Aid certification and Hike Leader
certification are required by either the Leader or Co-leader (between
them) before any activity is scheduled. All leaders are required to carry a First Aid Kit.
Our leaders and co-leaders are also certified as being trained by an experienced Hike Leader and having passed a test regarding club hiking protocol and procedures. For instance, what to do if somebody can't complete a hike as well as evaluating fellow hikers for exhaustion and ability to complete a hike.
the beginning of the hike, you will be introduced to the rest of the hikers.
One or more leader persons will carry a First Aid Kit to administer band-aids, over the counter medicines and various other aids to suit most minor incidences, while on the trail.
All hikes also have a "Rear Leader" (aka the sweep) whose job is to keep the group together, making sure nobody falls behind. If you leave the hike, you need to inform either the Hike Leader or the Rear Leader (sweep) and sign out on the Liability Waiver.
Your Hike Leader and Co-Leader are volunteers. You are expected to cooperate with the leader's decisions. Whether you remain signed in on a hike or not, is at the discretion of the Hike Leader.
If a Leader is unable to lead a hike or if a Co-leader is needed, call an Outings Committee Chair. If a hike is canceled, a leader will be at the trail head for at least 15 minutes after the announced start time. If no leader shows up, the hike has been cancelled. Always check this web site to verify if changes have been made and it may be a good idea to contact the hike leader as well.
