Backpacking Basics II

Backpacking Basics II

This class is designed for those that have attended our Backpacking Basics I class. We will put the skills you learned to the test. We will hike a little over a mile to a campsite on the Pine Mountain Trail at FDR State Park. You will bring all your gear and you will set up camp, cook your food, filter water, and much more. Waiting until you are out on the trail is not the time to test your skills and your gear. Join us in a safe environment where we can make adjustments and give guidance. You should pack your backpack as if you were actually going on a backpacking trip. We will complete a gear check and give recommendations. 

This is a small group event, so we have limited spots.

What You Get:

  • Instructor to guide you and assist
  • Hands-on practice
  • Gear check and recommendations

What To Bring:

  • All your gear  
  • One freeze-dried meal (single serving)
  • Water (enough for our two-mile hike)

Getting There:

We will meet at the parking area across the street from the Callaway Country Store. Please arrive by 1:00 as we will start our hike promptly.
