Event description

Description

Dates official! I will be booking a tent campsite in the actual campground for Friday the 20th, so that anyone coming from far away can stay Friday night and be ready for Saturday morning. We'll take off around 9:30-10 Saturday morning!

8 Tickets available, first come first serve! If you can't make the event or need to cancel let me know so I can make the ticket open to someone else =)

Do you love hiking? Do you love camping? Have you ever combined the two and been on an overnight backpacking trip?

If not - this is the outing for you! We will hike roughly 9 miles round trip, hike in to camp about 6 miles and hike out the next morning at 3 miles. I am very familiar with this loop! It's at a very populated state park with reliable water sources and cell phone service (even in the backcountry - in case of emergency!)

Beginning at Big Sugar Creek Trailhead:

Connecting to Lone Spring Trail (camping at BC #1)

And finally, exiting at the entrance.

Before we go, we can talk gear and make sure you have what you need. At camp, we can share tips, tricks and answer any questions. We will dine over a fire and relax all while having a great time camping in (hopefully!) mild Midwest fall weather!

Who would be interested? Let me know!
