The rise in membership has been matched by a rise in the level of activity in the chapter. In 1972, then Hiking Chair Kenneth Graham noted in his annual report that there had been a total of 59 organized hikes that year. In 1977 Hiking Chairman Malcolm White noted that the response to the hiking program was disappointing: several of the 50 hikes scheduled had no participants and only four had more than ten people show up. In 2019, before Chapter operations were interrupted by the COVID pandemic, DV leaders led an average of 65 hikes every month. Nearly 1500 individuals joined and enjoyed these activities, and 135 members reached 100-miler status that year. In addition, numerous backpacking, trail work, biking, and paddling trips were part of the very active schedule.
