Description

NEW! Group Dynamics and Backcountry Travel

Are your companions capable—endurance, safety, experience?

What you should consider when hiking with people with whom you’re not familiar, in particular, their hiking ability or experience. Can they save you if an accident occurs? Or you, them? We will discuss six behavioral traits to bear in mind when forming a hiking group.

We will discuss common attributes that you may want to consider when forming an ad hoc hiking group.

  • What to discuss BEFORE meeting at the trailhead.
  • Things to go over at the trailhead: planning, leadership, timetable, etc.
  • Things to consider during the hike.
  • Traits to be on the lookout for and ways to possibly handle sensitive situations.

Time for lots of discussion and group interaction. Your comments and ideas are welcome and help contribute to the success of this class.
