Event description

Description

I am so excited about bringing this event to all of you, Women Who Hike SoCal.

Join WWH Founder, Nicole Brown and long distance hiker Shawnté Salabert for a day on the trails and also learning hiking and trail preparedness along the famed Pacific Crest Trail.

Are you interested in learning about or getting more comfortable with backpacking? Shawnté Salabert, long-distance hiker and author of Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California, will lead an all-day workshop focused on helping you feel trail-ready! The day will cover an array of topics, including, but not limited to a systems approach to preparing, backpack balance and fit, trip planning, hygiene, food, gear, and camp set-up. Bring your own fully-loaded overnight (or day) packs for a shake-down - and a short hike along the Pacific Crest Trail!

We will meet at 9AM in the lower parking lot of Vasquez Rocks. From there we will do our education intro and then do a short hike (4-5 miles in length, only 350 feet of gain) that will is rated at beginner-moderate. This event really is for anyone who is of beginner to intermediate hiking experience and even more advanced people will leave with valuable information, education as well as mingle with and get to know the local Southern California Women Who Hike community.

We are expecting warm temperatures into the 80's, so please come with sunblock, a hat and clothing and shoes fit for the trail in hot temperatures. Our hike will be between 4-5 miles.

PARKING: We'll meet at the northeast corner of the furthest parking lot near the main rock formations. To reach this parking lot, enter the park from Escondido Canyon Road, then proceed past the turnoff for the Visitor Center. From here, follow the main (dirt) park road past a parking area on the left, then continue on the road until it ends at a large parking area.

This is the first group event we have ever charged for and I can promise you the education you will leave with will be far beyond your money's worth. This will also ensure that those of you who want and need these skills will be able to attend. While I do expect a waitlist for this event, we will only allow for and refund cancellations if you cancel with at least 7 days notice. This ensures that whoever is planning for this event and really wants to attend, can do so. Thank you for your understanding and consideration in this matter, and for your patience in us putting this together as our spring WWH group event.

I am REALLY looking forward to this and hope to see many familiar and new faces that make up our Women Who Hike community here in Southern California!
