Alpine Backpacking 2019


Beginning Backpacking

Week of 7/29/19
L-Dub Students Only
For those with some experience who want a longer, a little bit harder trip.

Experience the best that the Goat Rocks Wilderness has to offer on this one-week excursion. During this program, you will:

  • Spend four days backpacking through the Goat Rock Wilderness, arriving at a new campsite each afternoon.

  • Experience what it’s like to be a field scientist by conducting ecological research.

  • Learn the basics of backcountry travel.

  • Hike about 5 miles a day, carrying everything you need in a backpack weighing 35-45 lbs.

  • Form new friendships.

This backpacking trip is perfect for all experience levels, including those who are new to backpacking and those who already love backpacking but have only have a week to spare this summer! This challenging and fun adventure will likely be one of your most meaningful and rewarding experiences.
