• planning a trip
• choosing gear
• packing a backpack
• Leave No Trace
The introduction to backpacking series will consist of 5 day long backpacking hikes throughout the eastern part of the Alleghenies region from May through September with an overnight opportunity in October. Each day hike will travel a different trail through the area and will have a special focal point for learning about backpacking.
