Reservation & Refund Policy

Bus Trip Mission

The Sierra Club mission is to explore, enjoy and protect the planet.  Thank you for your participation and support.


Our bus trips are open to all Sierra Club and non-Sierra Club members, 18 years of age and older. If you’re not currently a member, we encourage you to join the Sierra Club through their website. Our bus trips could not exist without the support of the Sierra Club and we would appreciate your support.

How to Sign Up for a Bus Trip

We accept sign ups on a first-come, first-served basis. We offer easy to difficult trips depending on the location. Please select your bus trip based on your physical condition and the trip’s level of difficulty.

Registration is available online through this website only.

Refund Policy

Note that sickness, injury, or work schedules are not grounds for a refund.  Via email, contact the Coordinator or Leader of the outing regarding a refund.

A full refund is possible only if:

  1. You are unable to make the trip but the Sierra Club is able to fill your seat.
  2. The Sierra Club cancels the bus outing.
  3. The trip leader determines that you shouldn’t be on the trip.

A partial refund is possible:

  1. We keep $25.00 if you cancel no less than 60 days prior to the outing.
  2. We keep $100.00 if you can cancel less than 60 days but more than 30 days prior to the outing.
  3. We keep the entire amount if you cancel less than 30 days prior to the outing.

Shared cost outings:

Where land use agencies, such as Inyo National Forest, require all participants to share equally in the direct cost of the trip, a refund of any fees collected above the direct cost is offered to all participants regardless of the stipulations above.  Note that participants who do not request a refund of any fee collected above the direct cost of the trip are assisting in defraying the costs incurred by leaders and Sierra Club San Diego in the operation of the bus trip program.

San Diego Chapter of the Sierra Club reserves the right to take photographs and/or videos during any Sierra Club bus trip, and to use those photographs and/or videos for marketing purposes for the Sierra Club. As a participant on one of our trips, you therefore are agreeing to let your image be used in such photographs and/or videos. Participants who do not wish their images to be used in this manner should notify the trip leader in advance.
