So You Want To Be A Backpacker: Beginner Edition

This guided hike will cover the basics of going out into nature for a day trip. Before going on an overnight or even multi-day backpacking trip, it is important to know the basics of a hike. Proper planning of your route and preparation of gear will allow you to tackle long day hikes and get your skills ready for a multi-day backpacking adventure – or just solidify your understandings of a day pack and survival skills to make sure that you’re safe and having fun on your hike

  • Children must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Pets are welcome but must be on leash at all times and if they are disruptive, you may be asked to take them back to your campsite.
