SPRING FORWARD LA TRAIL HIKERS!
We’ve completed 2 months of hiking so far in 2015! And that puts many of you ahead in the #52HikeChallenge as we continue our hiking adventures spring. While we’re talking about Spring, we would like you remember that Daylight Savings begins at 2am on Sunday, March 8, 2015. So make sure sure you change your clocks ahead one hour when you got to sleep on Saturday, March 7, 2015. Well, as you may already have seen, our LATH Hike Leads have compiled a great list of hikes for March & April 2015, and our LATH Digital Team will keep you up-to-date with all the events as they are posted. You’ll want to keep a note of LATH Meet & Greet on March 24th. If it’s your first time joining the group, you can go and meet some of our hikers, as your LATH/Hiking questions, and participate in some fun activities. If not, you’ll will be able to provide your hiking experience to others and also participate with our group in some good talk activities. On Saturday, April 25th, we’ll also be having our annual LATH Las Vegas Road Trip Hike! And, later in the fall we’ll be going to Zion National Park in Utah for our Fall 2015 LATH Road Trip Hike. Information for these additional activities will be posted at a later time (for those in this set, closer to their event date). We hope you’re looking to have some great adventures with us and look to more fun with the LA Trail Hikers!

WHAT IS A HIKING LEVEL?:
Please make sure to gauge yourself based on the hike’s difficulty level by looking at our Hike Level descriptions.
Find out more about hiking levels here:
HIKE CANCELLATION NOTE: Should any hike need to be cancelled (due to heavy rain or other reasons), we’ll try to post on our website’s hike’s detail page and on our Facebook page, about 1 .5 hours prior to the meeting point, so you are aware. Otherwise, the hike is considered a go.
ADDITIONAL HIKE NOTES:
– Weekend hikes are primarily in the morning unless otherwise indicated.
– All hikes are subject to change, cancellation or other modifications. We may even add in additional hikes that may not appear on the original posting.
– We try to schedule 2-3 months worth of hikes so we always have a fresh new set every so often.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE WITH THE GROUP ON THESE HIKES?
1. Read the details page for the hike you’re interested in.
2. Make sure that the Hike Level accommodates your hiking experience.
3. If, and only if it suits you, then (optional: RSVP via Facebook for the event and) show up the day of the hike with all necessary gear and water (we mention everything you need on each details page per hike).
MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
