Learn the skills in classroom training, join your fellow ‘packers for a group hike, then take those skills (and your enthusiasm) on a training trip to Anza-Borrego State Park.  This moderate-level training trip covers 6 miles, from Culp Valley Primitive Campground near Ranchita, across the foothills and into the desert for a night under the stars. Take a day hike on Sunday up Hellhole Canyon and scramble up the rocky approach to Maidenhair Falls. Attendance is required for the entire class, training hike, trip meeting, pack check and backpacking trip. You’ll earn the Basic Backpacking patch.
