Event Details

Join us for a backpacking conditioning hike to test your trail legs! We will cover 6-7 miles in about 2.5-3 hours using a combination of trails and old fire roads. Along the way we'll talk about the gear in your backpack and best practices for minimizing the load.  

Meet in the Reedy Creek parking lot in back right corner by 9:45am. Look for the orange Honda Element with LOTS of stickers on the back. The entrance is located off I-40 at exit 287. Map to parking lot:

If you missed our Backpacking 101 class, this outing will also qualify you for the 2 days/1night Beginner Backpacking trip in Uwharrie on April 26-27.  

Group size is limited to 15 to minimize impact on the ecosystem.  Please contact trip leaders at or 919-971-3788 for more information.
