Hiking Club Middle School · CMS Hiking Club


New for Winter 2020, CMS Sports is offering a co-ed hiking club.

Description:  Join the hiking club and get an opportunity to put some miles on your feet with moderate to challenging hikes.  Participants will have an opportunity to learn about trail safety, proper hydration and nutrition in addition to working on the Mission Trails 5 Peak Challenge.

Dates: Sunday December 6 through Sunday February 7
Days: Most hikes will be early  Sunday mornings with the possibility for an occasional Saturday in order to accommodate weather and schedules.
Times: Most hikes will meet at 9am with a 2-3 hour duration
Location: We will hike several local parks and preserves including Torrey Pines, Penasquitos Natural Preserve, and San Diego Mission Trails. Parents will be responsible for getting students to the trailheads on time and are more than welcome to participate with the group.  Plans will be built ahead of time and communicated to the students and parents.
Equipment: Students  will need to have proper footwear, attire, and means to stay hydrated.
Coaches: Jim and Trent are both local residents and avid hikers and outdoors enthusiasts. They have several years of experience coaching youth sports and have children within CUSD as well as CMS.
Please note there will be no restrooms or water facilities available during events.
Any questions should be sent to the CMS Sports Athletic Director, Kristen Guymon, at CMSsportsAD@gmail.com
