Get off the beaten path and into the backcountry with nothing but the pack on your back. Some of the best scenery and most serene camping you can have is only accessible by trail, but how do you plan a backpacking adventure? In this course, we'll go over everything you need to get started - or refreshed, if it's been a while - including all the basic gear you'll need, how to pack a backpack, meal preparation, course mapping, rules and permits, and safety concerns. We'll also share some specific trails that offer stunning scenery and are perfect for beginners.
