About The Event

Instead of learning in a classroom or online, let's just go for it and learn as we trek! 

We'll meet in a video call prior to the trek to talk GEAR and logistics. 

The exact route is TBD at the moment, but I'll be scouting and preparing this information soon. Expect 3-5 miles per day, easy-moderate difficulty hiking. 

We'll cover everything you need to know to plan, prepare, and execute a multi-day trek and we'll be PRACTICING these skills on trail together.
