A category rating may be modified with "+" or "-" to show increased or decreased difficulty, respectively, within the category rating.

WMC Activities ratings are based on a system devised for hikes by Kip Yost, which in turn is based on Dale Green's hike ratings table.

With the new trails, trailheads, and trail tracking tools, Dan Smith has updated the ratings and they can be downloaded as PDF files as well as KMZ and GPX files. These ratings will be continually updated as club members provide additional trail data.
