This class is designed to give the prospective Pacific Crest Trail, John Muir Trail or Appalachian Trail hiker and backpacker a solid foundation for planning a trip on the trail. We'll teach you the logistics behind a hiking or backpacking trip. We'll focus on trip planning skills necessary for long distance sections and thru hiking. Learn some basic resources and tips to get you started on your trip planning and the journey of a lifetime.

    Notes

    This session will focus on the Appalachian Trail but will still be useful to those looking to do other long distance hiking. This is part of our ongoing series for thru-hikers and was added because our first session of this filled up, so sign up today!
