Trekkers are a relatively fast-paced hiking group best described as “destination hikers”. Trekker hikes are on Tuesday and most Saturdays. Hiking season runs mid-March into October. In the winter the group switches to snowshoes and cross-country skis.
Tuesday Free Spirits are an intermediate group between the Pathfinders and Trekkers.
Pathfinders hike every Thursday except Thanksgiving and other holidays, at least 48 hikes each year. In the winter months, Pathfinders cross-country ski and snowshoe while the non-snow-bunnies walk on a lower elevation route. Pathfinder hikes are typically four to six miles with less than 1,000 feet of elevation gain.
Trips take place throughout much of the year: in high alpine locations during the summer and at lower elevations in the cooler months.
The origin of the club in 1920 was mountaineering. Scrambles, rock climbing and glaciered peak mountaineering are all possible with the club.
