Physical Challenge

Backpacking is as simple as walking in the woods, but carrying a loaded pack in the mountains over uneven terrain is physically strenuous. We will travel between 4 and 10 miles per day with packs loaded with personal equipment, water and a share of the group gear and food. The sense of accomplishment from backpacking is probably greater than any other trip we offer and many first time backpackers have had very positive experiences on this trip.
