Come to the first planning meeting on January 6 at 6:30pm at the Balboa campus, with your calendar and your wish list and maps of trails that you want to see or want to share, and I will bring mine. This adventure will involve determining and carrying out trip details, from deciding on start/end dates, daily trail itinerary, securing permits, trailhead access, overnight camp locations, gear, trip budget , to group tasks and organization.  Regularly scheduled planning meetings will keep us on track as the details of the trip fill out. Expect to plan a trip of at least 5 day pack-on duration, with altitude about 11,000ft or below .

Prerequisite: Completion of Basic Backpacking Course before April 2019. An overnight group shake-down trip to San Jacinto or San Gorgonio will be planned in June 2019 to satisfy the altitude prerequisite of hiking above 10,000 ft. 

Cancellation Policy: Refund and transfer requests must be submitted in writing prior to the registration deadline listed on the activity. No refunds or transfers will be issued after the registration deadline has passed unless the event is cancelled by council staff.
