Date and Time
Saturday, April 28, 2018
Registration is required for this activity.
Please contact leader(s).
Here's your opportunity to practice the backpacking skills you
learned in the April 2018 Backpacking Workshop. We'll start with
a complete gear shakedown where experienced backpackers
will give you advice on your gear, clothing, packing, etc. Then
we'll head into the forest with loaded packs for a 4-5 mile hike
at a slow-moderate pace (1-1.5 mph) over easy terrain. Our
destination is a mock camp site where we'll set up camp, pitch
tents, hang bear bags, filter water, and practice other key back-
country skills. Take a lunch to cook in camp if you'd like.
Preference will be given to Inner Backpacker Workshop
