Advanced Backpacking

Friday, September 15, 2017

For anyone with backpacking experience or a high level of fitness, we are offering a 5-day extended backpacking trip. This trip will help participants learn the finer points of planning an extended self-supported wilderness trip. The basic plan is to head to the 2.3 million acre Frank Church Wilderness in Central Idaho and hike to Alpine Lakes and take at least one night to leave the trail completely. Participants will help plan the exact route, plan food and make many of the trip decisions. Fees include transportation, permit fees, sanitation supplies, food containers, basic first aid and a facilitator. Fees do not include personal equipment or food. There are multiple pre-trip meetings so the group can make solid plans and be more involved in the decision making process. Participants need to be able to carry 35-45 pounds for 10 miles a day over rugged terrain. Pre-trip meeting July 13 at 7:00 p.m. and September 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Recreation Center.
