Help support your MeetupChip in
Wilderness Corps is for people who enjoy Backpacking, Hiking, Wilderness Stewardship and Trail Maintenance the beautiful outdoors while socializing with other like-minded individuals. We focus on many areas throughout the Western United States. Our main Stewardship Area is the Sierra National Forest which includes the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness, Ansel Adams Wilderness and the John Muir Wilderness. In late 2014 we extended our reach to the Sequoia National Forest. In 2015 we are working in the Mt. Pinos Ranger District of the Los Padres National Forest.
We offer a variety of activities for people of all ages. Expect to see easy to intermediate trips of 4-10 miles in total length. There will also be some moderate to strenuous trips of 12-15 miles (particularly for many of the back country hikes in the Sierra N.F.). And to suit the extreme tastes of those who enjoy a more challenging type of activity, we will have several very strenuous 20+ mile events that will provide opportunities for even deeper exploration of the back country wilderness.
Most events will be scheduled on weekends along with the occasional weekday and/or holiday trips. During the summer season there will be a lot of extended trips into the back country for Stewardship activities. For those interested in multi-day activities, there will be a lot of backpacking/camping trips scheduled during the spring, summer, and autumn seasons. We will even have winter activities for those that like winter snow exploration in the back country.

Hiking and back country travel can be a dangerous and unpredictable activity. It is ALWAYS recommended you bring sufficient supplies of drinking water, snacks/food, a small first aid kit, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a flashlight to all outdoor activities and know your limits. Of equal importance is that you have the proper type of footwear and clothing. Please match the hike to your skill level.
