About the Canes...
The Crooked Canes is a Glens Falls NY - Saratoga Springs NY area based group of individuals meeting every Thursday for a scheduled full day event. There is no official entity entitled "Crooked Canes." We're merely individuals sharing a common interest in enjoying outdoor activities and have a web site allowing us to communicate easily with anyone who choses to be on our Attendee List. Our events consist of hiking, paddling, bicycling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and occasionally other activities. Attendees (we refer to participants as "Attendees" simply because there is no membership in terms of enrollment forms, dues, classes of membership, etc.) are typically retirement age individuals who like being outdoors and wish to partake of events balancing socialization with exercise without testing endurance limits. Event locations range from the Eastern Adirondacks to the Northern Catskills or to locations in Western Vermont.

About Attendees...
Attendees are expected to have outdoor skills, knowledge, ability and physical condition, clothing and gear appropriate to outings they choose to participate in. They assume full responsibility for their actions and any injuries they may incur during an event and to anticipate and be prepared for any and all conditions and eventualities they or the group encounter.

About Joining Us...
This is awfully easy! There are no dues, no membership forms, no membership approval process. Before participating for the first time, go to our drop down menu at the top left of this page (and every page in our site), click it and read all the pages shown at the top with a ♥ preceeding the page name. You'll find out how to contact and meet us for outings, what you should expect from us and what we expect from you. Then, from one of our schedules, choose an outing that appears to be a comfortable fit for you and show up.  Before you go, don't be bashful about communicating with the outing leader.
