For 49 years the Guam Boonie Stomps have kept our hiking fees at $2 for those over 12 and children free. However, the inevitable erosion of inflation and the dramatic increase in prices the last few years have finally forced us to increase our hike fees.  With the aim of keeping Boonie Stomps an affordable, family friendly activity, the Guam Boonie Stompers will implement the following fee schedule starting April 1:

Adults (18 and up) - $5 per person
Children and Teens (below 18) - Free
Gloves (if needed) Free

We hope will understand the need for this fee increase and continue to keep hiking with us. Thank You!
