To our awesome LATH hikers,

In an effort to help reduce concerns and prevent exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to our group, the LA Trail Hikers (aka LATH) will be taking a break from our in-person scheduled group hikes beginning with the week of March 16, 2020.

Although outdoor activities and nature areas continue to be open to the public, we have considered that it would be best not to bring groups of people together during times when social distancing may be the better path to help prevent exposing anyone to the virus, even when outdoor activities, such as hiking, may be considered safe by some. This is the reason our group will be taking a hiatus from hiking the trails. In addition, we will be holding off on our spring Las Vegas road trip hike for similar reasons.

If you’ve hiked with us before, you’ve heard our group’s saying of “health before hike.” We stand by this, especially in times of quick changing health related situations. We always make it our priority to do what is best to ensure the safety and welfare of our hikers.

We don’t have a current date for our return, but we’ll make sure to let you know when we are back on schedule. We thank you for understanding and hope to get the group back on the trails soon enough.
