Every year the San Diego and North County Chapters of the Sierra Club hold a comprehensive 10-week backpacking course consisting of 10 Tuesday night information/training meetings and 4 weekend trips out to the local deserts and mountains.

This course is great for both new and experienced backpackers. The weekend trips include car camp, desert, mountain and snow camping. All the outings are lead by experienced Sierra Club leaders whose primary goals are your safety and fun. There are a range of trips from easy to challenging. The WBC is only offered once a year. It is open to both members and non-members of the Sierra Club. The course is offered at two locations. San Diego and Escondido.

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.
