Willamalane Hiking Trip Participant Requirements

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Bring all your own supplies, including a face covering that covers your mouth and nose, hand sanitizer, food, and water. Do not share food with other members who are not in your household. Willamalane Staff will carry a first aid kit.
  • Practice physical distancing measures by remaining at least six feet apart from those not of your household at all times. When it is not possible to maintain a 6-foot distance, use a face covering.
  • Offer a wide berth when passing, and if approaching from behind, say a friendly “hello, passing on your left.”
  • Cover your cough with a tissue, then throw away (put in baggie or pocket) or cough in your elbow.
  • Leave no trace: pack out everything you bring with you.
  • All participants are to manage their own transportation. Willamalane will not be coordinating carpooling. Drivers are not obligated nor should they feel pressured to take riders.
