About the Event

Our fully guided trips are designed to help you gain more skills, knowledge, and confidence outdoors. Join us for this beautiful 15-mile hike featuring several small lakes and streams along a dense forest trail. We will hike each day and set up a primitive camp off-trail each night. This trip not only gives you that backcountry feel but also offers countless opportunities for real wilderness and backpacking skill development such as hanging bear bags, purifying water, rigging a group tarp if it rains, and fire building! With the help of expert guides, the types of skills gained on our trips not only help develop a deeper connection with nature but they strengthen confidence and general awareness in the outdoors. 

NOTE:  This trip is great for beginners who are physically fit to walk several miles a day and able to carry a fully loaded backpack weighing 30 pounds or less. Based on miles/terrain, ease of water access, and expected weather conditions we plan to travel less than 8 miles per day at a steady pace. We kick off each day with a delicious breakfast and coffee/tea. Lunch on the trail will be roughly 45 minutes . If you have any reservations about your ability to participate in this trip, please reach out and let us know. We are happy to answer any questions or talk through your concerns. It's common for a beginner to NOT have all of the gear necessary for a trip like this so we're going to make it a little easier for you. Don't worry about food, stoves, pots, pans, or water filters. We have you covered!  If you wish to take care of your own meals, thats great too. Just let us know so we can adjust our group meal prep.

Meals are included and here's why: It's not just about planning your meals right for high activity in the woods but also how you plan to cook your meals. You can cook over a fire, on a stove, or in a bag with boiled water. By including meals on this trip, you don't have to make these decisions or purchase a camp stove and fuel or a proper mess kit. That's $100+ in savings right there! A simple plastic Tupperware with a fork, spoon, and cup is all you'll need for this trip. We will have hearty group meals cooked over a fire or prepped on the trail every day. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know well in advance so we can make accommodations as needed.

Purified water will be available in camp and on the trail at all times. If you need gear items such as, shelters, backpacks and more, we have some items available for rent. Quantities of these items are limited so make your rental requests early.  

You will have access to the gear list and directions on the "Group page" upon registration.
