Start: 03/11/2017 End:03/18/2017
Activity: Backpacking, snowshoeing, camping
Difficulty: Strenuous (25 miles over 3 days, the rest will be pretty casual but cold)
You ready to see a lake in a crater and hike on some skyline and sea?? Because we sure are! Join us for this spring break trip hitting some of the most scenic spots this side of the Mississippi. There will be backpacking on the Skyline to Sea trail, taking in scenic ridgeline views, dense sequoia forests, with snowshoeing and winter camping in Oregon around Crater Lake, and plenty of other casual car camping with notable sights like Mt. Shasta along the way. (I hear we might even be making a pit stop in the city of Weed, CA).
This is going to be a pretty intense trip with 25 miles of backpacking over three days as well as some pretty low winter camping temps once we reach Oregon, so get ready to get sendy with a challenging but rewarding trip, and your A game with the road trip playlists.
Feel free to contact us with any questions!
Applications are due February 23rd at midnight.
