Welcome to the Cache Hikers Website 

Hikes are scheduled for most weekends from mid-May to mid-October, and winter trips are scheduled from January to mid March.  Participants meet at the southwest corner of the Smith's Marketplace parking lot at 750 North Main Street in Logan, Utah.  Unless noted otherwise (below), the meeting time is 8:00 a.m. for summer hikes and 10:00 a.m. for winter trips.  Participants should bring food, water, and appropriate clothing, and consider a donation for gas if carpooling.

It is the participantís responsibility to be sure the trip is within his/her ability and stamina, and to have adequate equipment, including gear for weather, sun, and insects (for winter trips, trail crampons ("cleats" or "spikes") may be useful if conditions are not suitable for skis or snowshoes). Please contact the trip leader for more information.
