About the event

This is Part 3 of  our Intro to Backpacking Course: Trip Planning

You can take the complete 3 part series (taking place June 1st, June 8th, and June 15th), or you can drop in on the aspects of backpacking you want to learn more about. 

If you've never been out overnight on a trail, planning your first backpacking trip can be daunting. But with great advice and a few resources, you can feel comfortable starting off with a safe and enjoyable backpacking trip.

In this session, you'll learn how to choose a suitable route, how to prepare before the trailhead, on the trail, and for your return. You can explore a number of trip options using our physical maps at the space, and even plan out a full trip with friends.

We can't wait to see where your trip planning takes you.
