COVID-19 Updates

at Mount Hermon

We're open for Adventuring!

At Mount Hermon Adventures your safety is our number one priority. The following COVID-19 precautions are part of our comprehensive plan to mitigate the risk of possible exposure for our staff and guests. However, we ask all guests to acknowledge that participation in activities at Mount Hermon Adventures is voluntary. By entering our facilities and/or using equipment and activities, guests— whether paying customers or those observing— assume all risk associated with the possible exposure to or transmission of the COVID-19 virus and other illnesses. Guests on the property are asked to comply with all posted rules and requirements and staff directives; failure to do so may result in removal from the premises.

The information below is designed to help you know what measures we are taking for your protection, and what responsibilities you have as a guest.
For our Facilities and Staff:
  • Enhanced Cleaning: All staff and guest areas are regularly and extensively cleaned, including check in areas, tables, restroom facilities and retail space. Staff and guest safety equipment (harnesses, helmets, etc.) is cleaned between uses.
  • Limited Capacity: We will be operating at a limited capacity with appropriate time between tours to facilitate social distancing and cleaning requirements.
  • Hand Washing and Sanitizing: Bathrooms are available for regular hand washing, and hand sanitizer is at multiple points throughout the facility.
  • Gloves: A new pair of adventure gloves will be provided for each guest and is complimentary with your tour.
  • Staff Training: Staff have received training on COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
  • Staff Screening: Staff are asked not to report to work if they, or anyone they have come into contact with, are exhibiting signs of illness.
  • Staff Personal Protective Equipment: All staff are equipped with proper protective equipment including gloves, face coverings, and (where necessary for brief close encounters with guests) eye protection or workplace barriers.
For our Guests:
  • Please— STAY Home if you show any signs or symptoms of being sick.
  • Face Covering: Under current Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, allowing unmasked members of the public into business establishments creates a health and safety risk. Moreover, COVID-19 is spread by persons who may be asymptomatic, and who possibly have no idea whether they carry the virus. As a result, customers are required to wear masks or other suitable face coverings (e.g., bandana, face shield, and the like) under state and local ordinances mandating masks.
  • Social Distancing: Please maintain a 6-foot distance from others outside of your family group. Appropriate spacing is clearly marked for lines, waiting areas and on the course. Staff will help ensure appropriate distancing throughout your experience.
  • Health Screening: At check-in you will be asked to attest to a set of simple, health-related questions.
  • Temperature Check: At check-in a no-touch thermometer will be used. Those with 100.4 or higher temperature will be denied entry and a refund will be provided.

Our policies have been developed through consideration of the California State Guidelines and Santa Cruz County Orders.


We are grateful that you would consider adventuring with us and we look forward to seeing you in the Redwoods soon!
