Hikes on this website are open to individuals, not big groups or for commercial uses.
There is no formal membership and no need to sign up for hikes in advance. If you want to join a hike, make sure you read the general guidance on this site and the specific hike details. Then if you still think the hike is for you, just turn up.
The hikes are shared experiences, not services. Every hiker remains responsible for his or her own safety, welfare and actions at all times.
The hikes nevertheless have a spirit of co-operation. Participants respect the leadership of the hike initator(s) and comradeship with everyone on the hike.
Some hikes involve car-sharing to the start point from the meeting point. This involves individual arrangements between drivers and passengers at the meeting point. It usually works fine, but places in cars cannot be absolutely guaranteed in advance.
You are encouraged to get involved in leading and/or creating hikes when you have some experience, or to help out in other ways.
