Backpacking

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. On all trips, the transportation will be by carpool, which has made it possible for us to keep the prices of these trips as low as possible. If you don’t have some of the equipment, don’t worry! Any rentals that you need are 50% off of our regular prices. Don’t know how to plan an appropriate backpacking meal? We’ll even help you with a group meal. Our goal is to get you into the wilderness.
