We love to hike in all sorts of weather. We find that it is usually not as bad as it looks from inside a cozy house, and often is surprisingly fantastic!

Here is our policy.


If it’s raining lightly, we hike.

If it’s threatening to rain at hike time but it hasn’t started, we assemble at the trail head and probably hike.

If it’s raining hard at hike time, the hike is cancelled.


If the roads getting to the trail head are dangerous, there’s no hike.

If it’s snowing but the roads aren’t expected to get bad, we hike.
