Overview

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 participants.
