Watch this site for possible weather-related cancellations. Don't forget food and at least a quart of water.  Drink even before getting thirsty.  Good hiking boots or ridged-sole shoes are strongly recommended for all hikes at any time of year.  Also, sticks or poles are a big help on slopes and slippery terrain.   The return times for the FCE-U & local hikes are just a rough guess.  Bring a well-supplied backpack and be prepared for all types of weather and conditions. See FCE Hiking Notes.
