On Tuesday, Apr 15, different levels of hikes will be offered at some of the many trails in the area. We will have all day use of the premises on Tuesday so if the weather is bad, or if some of us just feel like taking it easy we have a space.

Maximum of 15 persons . The cost is $116 per person. Note that a new policy of the hostel is that any cancellations before Feb 11 will result in a $5 fee.

Money (if any) above the final costs will be donated to the Singleaires conservation fund. Send your $116 check, made out to Sierra Singleaires, to Larry Stafford.

Forever:The Outings Committee is now offering a new mentoring program designed for would-be new hike leaders and co-leaders who may be unsure if they want to lead before committing to the regular program for hike leader training that is required by the Sierra Club. You can find out by using Bobbie Burri as a mentor. She will show how she goes through all the steps from initial planning and preparation, pre-hike scouting, trailhead talk, trail protocol, and then you will co-lead one of her hikes with her.Here is youropportunity to explore our hiking program before making a commitment to be one of our Hike Leaders. This is one of the best ways you can serve our Singleaires Group. Our Hike Leaders are the life blood of our organization. We hope you will consider using this resource! Contact ,  or , .
