Backpacking & Hiking
This program is designed to make backpacking accessible for everyone by utilizing short to mid-distance routes. During the pre-trip meeting we’ll arrange the Friday afternoon departure, transportation, meals and equipment. All trips include transportation, food, and an experienced instructor. If you don’t have some of the equipment, don’t worry! Any rentals that you need are available at Center Activities and are included in the trip cost. Our goal is to get you into the wilderness.
Be sure to come to our FREE Backpacking Seminars offered each semester! Our professional outdoor staff cover the basics of equipment, clothing, food packs, and "Leave No Trace Principles." Everyone is invited to come meet other hikers who are looking for local backpacking adventures.
