Hey Party People!

Come out and join us this Sunday for a social-paced hike up Echo Mountain.  We'll hike up the Sam Merrill Trail to the White City ruins for a snack break and take in the views of the city (if the smog isn't covering it up) before returning back down.  While at the ruins, feel free to read up on the history of the Mount Lowe Railway or give a quick shout in the Echophone and (maybe) see why it's called Echo Mountain.

This 5.5 mile Roundtrip hike has an elevation gain of about 1,400 feet.  I would say this is a beginner-intermediate hike, a little more challenging than just a beginner hike due to the constant uphill portions.

Bring 2 quarts of liquids (water,sports drink), a snack to share, decent hiking shoes, a hat/cap/visor, sunglasses, sunblock, hiking poles (Optional), and money to grab a bite to eat afterwards (Optional).

As with all Sierra Club hikes, there will be a point and a sweep which the group will need to stay between.  You will also need to sign a Sierra Club liability waiver to participate on this activity.

No tigers or turtles please...or any other pets.

Please note that there are two departure times on Saturday and two return times on Monday, both of which are listed on the boat sign-up page.  If you don’t click on the link in the email, the next time you log into sc2030.org you will be directed to the boat sign-up page.  You can also use this link: http://www.sc2030.org/my_membership/reserve_boat.php?url_event=OD0EI1LST2

 

Can I switch boats once I have signed up? Yes, but once a boat is full you will have to sign up for the other boat by just going back to the link above. There will also be an opportunity to switch boats for the return trip home. We will post a sign-up board and waiting list to switch boats outside the mess hall.

 

Where do I catch my boat? Details about where to check-in and boat loading will be provided in the trip information package; in general, the boat departure is very close to the Long Beach Aquarium.

 

Do I have to carry my luggage a long way?  No. Just a little way.  You can drop off your luggage at the check-in location prior to parking your car.

 

 I get seasick, what should I do?  You might want to bring seasickness pill with you. We suggest using the non-drowsy type so that once we get to the island you can partake in all the fun activities without being sleepy.

 

How much does parking cost for the weekend?  Our boat vender has indicated Parking at the Pike parking lot with validation with cost $40.  Although most years - they actually charge less (strange). If you don’t want to pay the full price, consider finding someone to carpool with.

 

How do I arrange for a Carpool?  The Sierra Club does not arrange for carpools and is not responsible or liable for those arrangements.  However, you can use meet up messaging or other social media to arrange for carpools. There is a carpool tab in the trip information page.  You can enter your information and people can email you directly. Additionally, you can also use the comments section of the Catalina Island’s meet up page to arrange for carpool. 

 

 Accommodations and food:

 

Is this camping? No, we are staying in a summer camp – you will not need a tent for this trip. You will be staying in either a cabin or a platform tent.

 

What is the difference between a Cabin and a Platform Tent?  Platform tents have a wood base, green canvas sides, and two cots with a mattress each inside (think the TV show Mash). The platform tents typically hold 2 persons, but you can have one to yourself if you choose to. Rustic wood cabins w/electric lights/outlets with bunk beds sleeps up to 8 persons. Cabins are same sex.  There is one central restroom with private shower stalls for each set cabins.  Arrangements can be made to share a cabin with groups of friends. If you don’t have a roommate in mind, no worries!  We will randomly assign you to a cabin.  We have male only and female only cabins. We do not have coed cabins. The cabins are located in the front area of the camp, while the tent cabins are in the rear. 

 

Both cabin and platform tents have one mattress per bed. However, you will need to bring your own sheet(s), pillow, and sleeping bag.  If privacy is an issue for you and you do not want share a cabin or a tent, you have the option to stay in a platform tent by yourself.

 

Does the camp have showers? Yes, there are free hot showers at camp. But you must bring your own soap and shampoo.

 

Can I upgrade to a cabin after I have signed up? Yes, the cost is $20.  You can go directly to Paypal.com or send us a check to the address on the Trip Description. For Paypal:  Log on to Paypal.com and enter in the following address: sc2030acct@gmail.com and pay the $20. Or send a check for $20. Refunds for switching from a cabin to a tent after payment is made are not available.

 

Do I have to make advanced arrangements for a roommate? No. We will make the arrangements when we arrive. If you have 6 or more people in your group of friends, you can get your own cabin. Otherwise, you will likely have to share.  You don’t need to tell us in advance who you are rooming with as we handle this when we get to the island. Our leaders will handle cabin check-in once we get to camp.

 

How do I get a roommate? If you are staying in a cabin, you can let us know if you have some friends you would like to share with-otherwise we will assign you to a cabin.  If you are in a tent, you can stay in your own tent or pick a roommate.

 

Should I come on the trip if I am not coming with a group of friends?  Yes, you will meet lots of people quickly so please join in.

LIMITED SEATS REMAINING!!!

 

Hey Party People!

Who's got an itch to go on another Epic Adventure?!?!?  Well wait no mo...err...okay so technically I guess you'll have to wait until September.  I've put together another FUNtastic 5-day/4-night, I-need-to-get-out-of-Dodge outdoor experience you won't want to miss. This extended Labor Day Weekend (September 2-6, 2017), the Sierra Club 20s & 30s Section brings you...

The EPIC SOUTHWEST ADVENTURE! (Because one state just wasn't epic enough!)

Our featured destination: Monument Valley!  A popular location on the Utah/Arizona border where many westerns were shot, Monument Valley is known for its towering sandstone buttes and mesas that rise majestically from the desert floor.  We'll also visit Natural Bridges National Monument, home of the second largest natural bridge in the world!  Rounding out the itinerary are stops at Horseshoe Bend (just google it!), Four Corners Monument (because where else can you be in four states at once?), and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (which is just as stunning as its southern, more accessible counterpart but without the crowds.)   The best part is you don't have to drive for 10 hours to get there!   We're hopping on a chartered bus so you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

Sierra Club Member Price for the Epic Southwest Adventure: $440.

Trip includes: Roundtrip transportation by charter bus out of LA, 2 nights lodging* (double occupancy), 2 nights camping, all park entrance fees, some meals, bus snacks and movies, driver gratuity, and a ton of photo ops!!  Tossed in at no additional charge are some Sierra Club Outings Leaders to make sure you have a rootin' tootin' good time!  All guided hikes will be between 4-6 miles, on-trail, and led/swept by said Sierra Club Outings Leaders.  Note: Some of the hikes are on sandy trails so it'll seem a lot longer than it is.

All participants will need to bring their own tent (or share one), sleeping bag and sleeping pad, reusable dinnerware, and a good attitude! Participants will be expected to help with loading & unloading of gear, campsite setup & clean up, and meal preparation & clean up. You will be randomly assigned to a small group of 4-5 participants for each duty.

Any questions, comments, or concerns? Just hit that Contact Leader tab.

* Due to the long distance and the bus driver's maximum allotted driving hours per day, we cannot drive straight to the campsite.  On the way there, we'll be stopping overnight in St George, UT and on the way back, we'll be stopping overnight in LAS VEGAS, BAYBEE!!!

 

To comply with National Park Service regulations, fees charged are only used to cover direct expenses (campsite fees, food, transportation, etc.) There will be no financial profit from this activity.

 
Cancellation Policy:
Cancellations made 21 days prior to trip start date will receive full refund. Cancellations made 7-20 days prior to trip start date will receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be given for cancellations made less than 7 days before the trip. All exceptions to this policy shall be reviewed by the trip leader after the completion of the trip.
