Our goal for ICL hiking is to introduce you to locations in Southwest Utah you may not have explored, to provide an enjoyable social experience, and to offer healthy exercise. ICL hiking is open to all ages, and hikers should be moderately fit. Two hikes per month will be scheduled with a walking distance for each of 3-5 miles. Although we try to maintain a group of no more than 30, we will not turn down anyone on hike day.
Things to know before you go:
We will always depart from the west side of the North Plaza Building parking lot, 55 South 900 East. If you are on the way, or prefer not to go to the parking lot, please let me know, and we will try to determine a good location to meet.
Unless otherwise noted, departure time will be 9:00 a.m. during the warmer months (September, October, April, May) and 10:00 a.m. in the cooler months.
Everyone must sign the attendance sheet. This is very important. It is the justification for Dixie State University to seek State of Utah funding.
Guests are welcome to participate in one hike per semester without joining ICL. They must sign the attendance sheet as well as a Release of Liability form which will be available from the instructor.
We will attempt to provide the best information possible for the monthly hikes in The Learning Link. However, weather, road conditions, and other factors make the final decision as to where each hike will be located.
Daypack, filled water bottles, lunch and/or snacks for mid-point of hike, extra socks, good hiking boots that provide ankle support, small flashlight, personal medication, light jacket, hiking poles, sunscreen, wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, camera, and binoculars.
Recommended safety gear:
Emergency whistle, solar blanket, emergency poncho, pocketknife, compass, map of hike area, matches, personal first aid kit, and snake bite kit.
No pets allowed on hikes.
