Intro To Backpacking
A crucial step in any successful outing is planning. We will cover areas such as finding & researching a location, route planning, Leave No Trace principles, necessary gear & proper packing, establishing a communication plan, compass & map use, foot care and hygiene, weather considerations, and lost hiker safety.
Shake Down Hike
Feel like you are ready to hit the trail? We will review your plan and assembled gear then put your set up to the test during this short day hike. While on trail we will do deeper dives on multiple topics from the pre-trip planning class as well as cover new subjects such as safe river crossings, ascending / descending terrains, and trail first aid options.
It is time to put the parking lot behind us. With nothing but our packs, we will venture off on an overnight adventure that provides more than vistas and valley rivers. This guided trip will involve deeper dives into land navigation, securing food at camp, trail cooking, overnight site selection considerations, and more than a few photo worthy views.
