~ New Member Info ~

Joining the Canes is easy. It entails adding your name and contact info to our email list, accepting all risks associated with our activities by submitting an Acknowledgement of Risk Agreement form, and agreeing to abide by Canes Practices. However, whether or not you add your name to our email list, prior to your first participation in a Crooked Canes activity you must complete and submit an "Acknowledgement of Risk Agreement" form to the leader of the outing or activity.

Why do people hike? There are nearly as many reasons as hikers. Some hike for the enjoyment of being immersed in nature; the beauty of the hills, woods and ponds; the diversity of flowers, plants and ferns; socializing with other hikers, meeting new people with similar interests, and developing friendships; just getting out; aerobic exercise; testing one's stamina; and many more reasons. If you enjoy the outdoors, whether it's to hike, paddle, bike or ski, we would welcome you on our outings.

We hike throughout the year, and volunteer members of the Crooked Canes lead our outings in the NY Capital Region and Adirondacks.
