Test your Pack Hike! (and gear)

Test your Pack Hike! (and gear)

Calling all beginner backpackers (or those that want a good workout) let’s “Test Your Pack Hike!” Bring your fully packed backpack or weighted pack and hike 4 miles at Edwin Warner Park.  This will be a good exercise to test your backpack and determine how much weight you can carry and if adjustments need to be made.  Good practice of carrying a pack will start you off in the right direction for upcoming backpacking trips in the Spring and Summer.  After we finish our hike we will gather at the open field next to the Edwin Warner Nature Center and practice setting up and taking down individual tents and anything else anyone would like to review and/or practice. All speeds, levels and backpacking experience welcomed!

When:     Sunday April 6th at 2:00pm will depart exactly at 2:15pm

Where:   Edwin Warner Nature Center - 7311 Hwy 100, Nashville, TN 37221 (meet in front of restrooms)

Estimated Time:  2 hours Distance:  4 miles – Blue Trail and Cane Connector Trail 

Difficulty:  Easy to Moderate 

Cost:  $0.00 

Hike Leader:  Giselle Romero 

Co-Leader:  Kat Marsh

Notes:   Dogs on a leash okay (Park regs require no more than 6-ft leash)
