Non Members are welcome on OTMC trips, and we ask all intending participants to download and read our 'Tramping with the OTMC' guide - this contains important information on how our trips are run, how to keep yourself safe and how you can assist our leaders as they plan our trips. The OTMC does not offer 'guided walks' and there is in an expectation that all participants will follow the guidelines outlined in our 'Tramping with the OTMC Guide'. Participation on OTMC trips is at the discretion of the trip leader.
