Beginning backpacking is designed to get people who have never been into the backcountry out for a 2-night wilderness experience. The group meets to discuss equipment and expectations well in advance to give everyone time to boost their fitness and go shopping. The exact route is not determined until the group gets together but expect reasonable mileage, a lake, and 4 hours of van time on each end. The cost covers transportation, permits and parking, wag bags, and group gear like water treatment. It does not cover food, camping equipment, and Sherpas. More experienced participants are welcome, but you aren’t going to get the trip tailored to you.
Pre-trip meeting: July 22 at 6:00 p.m. at the Community Recreation Center
