Hikes are graded by a number-letter code indicating length and elevation gain:
Length of Hike
Elevation Gain During Hike
|1 - up to 6 miles||A - under 1000 feet|
|2 - 6 to 10 miles||B - 1000 to 2000 feet|
|3 - 10 to 15 miles||C - 2000 to 3000 feet|
|4 - 15 to 20 miles||D - 3000 to 4000 feet|
(Example: 3B hikes are 10 to 15 miles with 1000 to 2000 feet elevation gain)
Because of insurance liability, the Sierra Club takes no responsibility for organizing, but does encourage voluntary ride sharing. All trips begin and end at the trailhead, not the initial meeting place. Any carpool arrangements are private agreements between the driver and the passengers. Drivers must carry adequate insurance coverage. Riders are expected as a matter of courtesy to reimburse drivers to cover the transportation expenses of the trip. The Chapter does not recommend a reimbursement rate. The IRS estimates that the 2008 cost of operating a car is 70 cents per mile. Drivers and passengers are free to settle on an agreed rate.
