Lead a Hike!

Members are encouraged to lead hikes! All of our events happen because someone like you stepped forward to lead them. To get your hike on the schedule, you'll need to submit a description of it to the newsletter editor.

We can offer some help. For ideas for hikes, feel free to look at our hike archive. You may also find text there that you can use in your write-up. But if you already know of the hike you want to do, hikes to new places are always cool. So go for it!

To submit your hike to the newsletter editor, please fill out the blanks below. Using this form will help make sure you don't leave any important information out. (The form below is only for submitting hikes to the calendar. Please go here to contact the club for other purposes.) If the blanks in the form do not let you give a desired answer to any question, answer it the best you can. There will be a place at the end to clarify your answers.

If you need copies of the form your hikers will sign at the start of your hike, you may get them by printing out this web page: http://www.sfhiking.com/hikeform.pdf   It is best you get them first, and then come back here to submit your hike.

First, enter the members' password:
