Backpacking 101

Event Date: 
Thu, Feb 28 7:00

Have you ever wanted to try backpacking or at least learn more about it? We’ll cover gear from head to foot and everything in between during a brief 2 hour meeting/social. Bring the gear you currently own including backpack, tent, sleeping bag/pad, camp stove or kitchen set, water devices and tools, hiking boots, first aid kit, etc. We'll give you our two cents' worth based on training and years of experience, mostly trial and error. 

If you're comfortable with what you learn and have/acquire the proper gear, join us for a Beginner Backpacking in Uwharrie National Forest on April 20-21. But if you would like a shorter trip first to test your trails legs, sign up for the Backpacking Conditioning in Umstead on Saturday, March 16.

Please contact trip leaders at or 919-971-3788 for more information.
