Backpacking Conditioning in Umstead
Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
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: http://goo.gl/maps/VcigC
