Basic Backpacking Course *Hellhole Canyon* Feb. 5-6, 2022
If you have completed the Wildernss Hiker class and want to go the next progression, backpacking is the second step in the training series. Training includes an all-day classroom session, a day of mostly moderate hiking with the group, a short meeting to check gear and pack weights, and an overnight trip to practice learned skills. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park makes a perfect location for a winter training, offering mostly mild weather for day hiking and crisp, cold nights. If we are lucky, clear skies will give us a stunning view of the stars.
