Beginner backpacking

  • Jul 19, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • White Ranch Park

West Access: 25303 Belcher Hill Road, Golden
Take State Highway 93 north from Golden approximately 1 mile to Golden Gate Canyon Road. Travel west 4.1 miles to Crawford Gulch Road (Highway 57). Follow the signs to White Ranch Park.

Folks this is the easiest backpacking trip you'll ever do. It's a mostly level one mile walk to the campsite. We'll hike in to the campsite (s) and spend the night. They provide a bathroom, firewood, a picnic table and fire ring. I'll let you know what campsites we have next week.

If you need a backpacking list of what to bring just ask. I have one.

    This is awesome, I've always wanted to do an easy beginner trip so I wish I was free to come down from foco that date. Great idea, thumbs up!

    Yes, I'd like the backpacking list too please.
    Also, since the hike is short are there any plans for the rest of the day? Perhaps socializing and exploring? Since I haven't been to this area I am not sure what is available. Thanks!

    Question - is everyone staying the night or is anyone just hiking to the campsite and back? I am not interested in camping but the hike would be great!

    I'd also love the backpacking list. Also, is this an overnight camping trip? Or spending the day at the campsite?

    June 22, 2014

    This is an overnight camping trip?

    Wish I didn't already have things to do this date - just got back from my 2nd hike at White Ranch Park this weekend and it is one of my favorite places.
    Enjoy!
