Participants will be carrying their own gear, 35 - 40lbs, for roughly 4 miles each day over moderate terrain. We recommend doing some day hikes with a 35 - 40lb pack prior to your trip. Also, 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.
