We would love to have you lead trips with Hoofers! Check out some resources for trip leading information below.
We don’t have specific requirements for most trip leaders (whitewater paddling and climbing being notable exceptions), but we do offer events and activities aimed at teaching people how to lead their own trips safely and confidently. Come learn how to do outdoor stuff! If you are interested in learning more about trip leadership and leadership training events contact our Trip Leadership Coordinator or check out any events on the calendar. Our leaders always welcome co-leaders looking to learn whats up.
