Bear Rocks Davis WV,
Join us for the leader's annual backpack at Dolly Sods during blueberry season. A high-elevation area with lots of open terrain, and a total of only 11 miles spread over 3 days. Trip starts at 3:00 PM on Friday so we can hike in a short distance and get a two-night backpack. A good trip for beginners. Pace will be slow with lots of time for breaks. To register for this event click on the register link, you will be taken to the original listing where you can then register. This trip is suitable for novices and beginners with gear appropriate for the season. Contact leader for help with gear. Water shoes are required as there are several stream crossings. Bear canisters or Ursack's or similar are required as there are bears and limited trees to hang properly in the area of the campsites we typically use. **Lisa Novins is a backpacking leader in training under the supervision of David Mong who is the leader of record.** Open to families. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Easy: Reasonable fitness for the expected activity is needed, but the trip is designed for those new to the activity. Expect to be active up to 4 hours/day. A bit more active time than the relaxed rating, but with generous breaks. Leader likes a slow pace with lots of time to admire the scenery and take photos. All participants must attest they are vaccinated prior to their approval to participate.
