SIHC NOTE. SIHC strongly recommends that participants wear good hiking shoes and be prepared for a range of possible weather conditions. For instance, you may want to pack a raincoat, a waterproof hiking jacket and an extra pair of socks and T-shirt in a plastic (Ziploc) bag, as well as a light snack (sandwiches and fruits) for your lunch and a bottle of mineral water for you to drink during your hike. 

CANCELLATION POLICY: SIHC does not cancel hikes due to inclement weather. Coordinators of the hikes will go to the meeting place and try to arrange an alternative activity (like a safer walk) if hiking is not possible. Participants are not obligated to attend the changed schedule.
