Start: 10/13/2017 End:10/15/2017
Difficulty: Strenuous - Backpacking experience and general physical fitness recommended
If you sign up for this trip, you will be participating in not one, but two SC Outfitters backpacking trips! We will leave USC at 7am on Friday in 2 groups. We will then start at different ends of the trail, camp together Friday and Saturday night, and continue on to the appropriate trailheads and switch cars. This trip will include backpacking with some day hiking and exploring on Saturday thrown in there as well. This is a beautiful hike with lots of lakes that may or may not be utilized for swimmin! We’re also hoping for some good fall colors as well.
We recommend some backpacking experience, as we will be hiking at pretty high elevation.
We are also looking for a participant driver. So if you’re able to drive your car with some of the participants and one of the guides, let us know! You will be reimbursed for gas.
