Join us for a fun introductory backpacking experience at a relaxed pace. We'll follow a moderately hilly 2-mile hike with a pack (4-5 miles round trip). We'll camp at a backcountry campsite on Saturday night and return to the parking lot on Sunday mid-day. An optional day hike will be offered on Saturday afternoon. You will receive more information about equipment, food and directions after you are confirmed. You will need to bring your equipment but the leader has some extra equipment (e.g. tent, backpack, sleeping bag) that may be available. The campsites have a picnic table and pit toilets (no running water).
Cost: Direct costs will be shared among participants, including permit costs and small donation to backpacking section. Cost information will be shared upon confirmation (estimated to be less than $30 per person). Contact leader for low income discount. Payment is through PayPal. Partial refunds provided up to 30 days before event. No refunds if less than 30 days. Leaders are volunteers and are not compensated.
Signup Instructions: Registration will begin MARCH 16. When you RSVP, you're indicating interest; this does NOT mean you are confirmed. You will be confirmed after completing a screening process. Contact Inga Aksamit with questions. Payment in advance is required. A detailed trip description will be provided to confirmed participants.
Bring: Backpacking gear and all of your food (this is individual commissary). A suggested gear list will be provided upon confirmation. Bring clothing for a variety of conditions, including cool or rainy weather.
Signup Restrictions: Participants must complete a screening form before their participation is confirmed. All participants must read and sign the Sierra Club liability waiver a minimum of a week before the trip.
Carpool: Carpooling to the trailhead is encouraged. We do not organize carpools, but participants may self-organize after the leader shares participant emails. We recommend that drivers and riders agree in advance about sharing costs.
Note: Carpool transportation is at the sole risk of the participants.
Cancellation Policy: Activity is held rain or shine, but may be altered due to inclement weather
