- Membership dues are $25 per year (with 3 and 5 year discounts available).
- Additional family memberships are $15 each per year.

The Bulletin is a monthly publication containing information about

the club website. The members area also include additional hikes added after
The Bulletin's publication.
The membership year runs from October 1 through September 30 for all club
members. Those who join prior to July 1 will have their membership expire on
September 30 of the current year. For those who join on or after July 1, the
membership will expire September 30 of the following year instead. So if you
join today for 1 year, then your membership will expire on September 30, 2021.
A one-month Temporary Membership is also available through the online
application. One additional family member may be included.
