• June 16: a moderate 2.8-km hike up Mount Baldy Lookout Trail near Sorrento. The trail starts off at the east end of the South Shores Place Cul-de-Sac near Crannog Ales, home of award-winning organic beers.

The club asks those interested in any of the outings to contact leaders at least a day ahead to indicate interest and sort out meeting times. Membership costs $10 per family per year. Non-members of the club are allowed 2-3 free trips.
