There's no cost to join the hikes (other than gas for driving and sometimes a small parking fee) but if you want to subscribe to the email newsletter, it's $10 for the season (March to February) to cover those "publishing" costs. We also try to get notices of upcoming hikes posted in a few newspapers.

Many times, at least part of the group, will stop for ice cream on the way home (gotta replace all those calories!).
