Level: 2, 5.0 miles, Beginner and above.
This is a great trip for beginner backpackers and anyone who has ever wanted to try backpacking. We will meet up at the trailhead at the Park to pack and adjust our backpacks, review group gear needs for the weekend and go over hiking protocol before backpacking a short 1-1/2 miles to our campsite. After setting up our campsite, we will go for an afternoon hike and then settle down for a backpackers meal, evening campfire and Q&A session all about backpacking. After a backpackers breakfast, we will break camp and head home.
Gear sharing, meal planning, carpooling and all other details will be worked out by email the week before the trip.
WWO has a limited amount of backpack equipment to lend as a member benefit, and we will share equipment among participants, so don’t let a lack of gear or know-how discourage you from joining.
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, April 12, 2017
