Hike for Life Trip Policies
Hike for Life is an equal opportunity service provider and employer. Hike for Life operates under a special use permit from the USDA Forest Service, Pike National Forest.
All Hike for Life participants will, to the maximum extent practical, apply the Leave No Trace Front Country Principles:

2. Stay on designated trails
3. Pack out all trash and dog waste
4. Leave the area as you find it (leave plants and rocks in place)

6. Keep wildlife wild—keep your distance, do not feed or interact with the animals
7. Share the trails and manage your pet
All participants in HFL events must sign a liability waiver and provide, if applicable, information on health issues that could impact their ability to complete the event.
