Due to the nature of outdoor recreation all locations, activities and times are subject to change. We love mother nature but sometimes she’s hard to plan with. Weather, water levels, trail conditions, roads closures, and fires can change any trip with little warning. We appreciate the patience, understanding and flexibility of all parties involved in our outings. If changes need to be made we will update our information in a timely manner and will always notify registered participants as soon as possible.
