If you're a regular hiker who's ready to take it to the next level - backpacking! - this is your chance. This moderately-paced, one-night backpack will give you the chance to experience what its like to carry everything you need for an overnight; cook, eat, and sleep outdoors; and practice low-impact camping in a friendly environment. We will hike approximately 18-20 miles over two days. You will need to bring all the "Required" equipment on the 3-Season Backpacking Gear List.

Ideally, you will load up your pack with your overnight gear and take a hike with it BEFORE this trip to strengthen your legs. Full trip details will be provided to registered participants.
