Backpack the Black Forest Trail, South Side

Location visible to members


We will do the south side of the Black Forest Trail loop, picking up where we left off in Oct. The south side is 22 miles, and includes 900' and 1100' climbs. We'll do it as a loop to avoid shuttling cars. The plan is to leave Fri and camp out near the cars Fri night so as to get as early a start Sat as possible. After camping along the trail Sat night, we'll get back to the cars on Sun, probably mid afternoon.

Just to let everyone know what they're in for, Sat will be 13.5 mi, including major climbs of 500' and 1000'. Sun will be 7 mi, featuring 1100' and 800' climbs.

It will be slow going and, since daylight is at a premium this time of year, be sure to bring a headlamp.
