HTMC has always been an ohana of volunteers. No one gets paid; everyone chips in to keep the club active, exciting, and running on schedule. We depend on our friends and fellow hikers to serve as Board members, officers, and committee members. Please consider donating a couple of hours a week to HTMC!

Join the Trail Clearing Crew
Every Sunday the HTMC Trail Clearing Crew clears a trail for an upcoming club hike. The trail clearers use a variety of tools, from loppers to sickles and machetes, to keep the trails open by cutting invasive plants. Anyone is welcome to join trail clearings for open hikes, and HTMC members may join the Members Only trail clearings. You can earn a Trail Clearing patch after coming on two trail clearings and non-members can use up to two trail clearings towards your HTMC membership.
To get notification for upcoming trail clearings email email@example.com
