Description:

Spend a weekend in the Joshua Tree back country! This class is for women interested in Backpacking. Beginners are encouraged to join! We will carry everything we need for an overnight adventure in our backpacks. This is a perfect opportunity for those who want to get away from the noise of car camping, but may be afraid to go backpacking alone. You will enjoy the company of other women who love exploring the outdoors. You will learn new ideas for what to eat while camping on the trail. Your instructors will also go over trail safety, backpacking gear and how to set up and tear down camp efficiently. You must be able to carry approximately 30 pounds of weight in your backpack while hiking approximately 8 miles per day in the desert. The class will include two days of hiking and one night on the trail. We will meet on Saturday morning…hike to our campsite and hike out on Sunday. There will be an optional pre-hike session on Friday evening for anyone who wants to bring their loaded backpack to meet an instructor to check that they have all of the food, water and gear they will need for the trip. Class size limited to 6!
