Backpacking

Home » Activities » Backpacking
  • We offer one night trips, weekend long trips and multiple days on the trail.
  • We offer various levels of difficulty ranging from a moderate pace to a more vigorous/brisk pace suitable for your physical condition and interest.
  • Many of our backpacking trips are more local such as in Pennsylvania and New York, others longer distance such as in the White Mountains or in the Catskills.
  • Many of our trips may encompass trails such as the Appalachian trail or more remote trails in the back country or wilderness.
  • Our leaders are required to be Wilderness First Aid trained as well complete our Outdoor Leadership Training Program. 
  • Two Beginner Backpacking Workshops are offered each year which are all day events and comprehensive for the benefit of those who would like backpack or for those who have not backpacked for a long time.  This will ensure  confidence when embarking on the backpacking experience. 
  • Beginner Backpacking trips are also offered for those who would like to try one night out to assess their interest and abilities.
