  • No trailers, RVs, camper-trucks or motorcycles are allowed on camping trips except with express permission of the leader.
  • In order to participate on one of the Sierra Club's outings, you will need to sign a liability waiver.
  • In the interest of facilitating the logistics of some outings, it is customary that participants make carpooling arrangements. The Sierra Club does not have insurance for carpooling arrangements and assumes no liability for them. Carpooling ride sharing or anything similar is strictly a private arrangement among the participants. Participants assume the risks associated with this travel. Ride sharing passengers' contribution of at least 10 cents/mi to the driver is suggested.
