Chicago Suburban Backpackers is an organization for those interested in getting out and enjoying nature. Backpacking involves hiking on trails with survival gear to sustain you for a few days to a few weeks. Leaders are experienced in safely navigating with a compass and map to destinations averaging from 6 to 15 miles per day. Backpacing is a sport for those who are physically fit and have the necessary equipment to sustain themselves in good and bad weather. Members can attend begining trips with trainers who will teach you how to use the necessary gear needed for more advanced trips.  By becoming a member you have agreed to release this group from any and all liability.  You are responsbile for your own safety and safe conduct on trips.  Please remember that it is a vacation for everyone.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
