Participants will be carrying their own gear as well as group gear (35 - 40 lbs total), for roughly 4 miles each day over moderate terrain at elevations up to 7,200 ft. We recommend doing some day hikes with a 35 - 40 lb pack prior to your trip. Please make sure your hiking boots are broken in before the trip.
Although we'll always do our best to adhere to this schedule, it is often dictated by factors outside of our control and is therefore subject to change. We will run this trip rain or shine.
