Hikes - Hoofing it
Guided hikes (Hoofing it in Oaxaca) feature a variety of day hikes in the Oaxaca Valley and in the surrounding mountains and are offered from November through March. It’s a great opportunity to get out into the countryside for some fresh air and exercise and to see things you might not otherwise have a chance to enjoy. Transportation to and from the trail head is included in the ticketing fee.
Reservations: Advance reservations are required and can be made in person at the Oaxaca Lending Library circulation desk or online by clicking the button next to the hike you are interested in below. Typically, hikes are available for reservation and purchase starting 30 days prior to the hike.
Refunds: Please note that we cannot offer refunds once a registration is confirmed. However, if your plans change, you can give or sell your reservation to someone else. You might accomplish this by word of mouth or by means of a post on the Friends of the Oaxaca Lending Library Facebook page, which you can access HERE. Your substitute can simply give your name when they check in the morning of the tour or hike.
Health Precautions: Since there are periodic COVID surges in Oaxaca and elsewhere, masking is strongly suggested while in the transportation van. You will be presented an opportunity to review all policies related to the event prior to making your purchase.
Departure Location: Hike participants will rendezvous at the parking lot across from Parque Llano, on Dr. Liceaga (between Pino Suarez and Benito Juarez) at 8:15 AM to check in and board vans for a 8:30 am departure.
Walk-in Registration: We sometimes have unclaimed seats at the time of boarding, even if registrations were filled. So if you were unable to register for a hike, do come on the morning of the hike to see if seats are available for purchase.
Hoofing It Newsletter: When you sign up for a hike, you will be added to the mailing list for upcoming hike information. When you receive that first mailing, you can update your mailing preferences or unsubscribe. Another way to learn more about our hikes is to go to the Hoofing it in Oaxaca website.
Volunteer Guides Needed: The OLL is looking for volunteer guides for the hiking program for the upcoming 2023/2024 season. Feel free to contact Larry Ginzkey, at email@example.com for more information about volunteering.
