Intro To "Lightweight"­ Backpacking

  • Apr 21, 2013 · 10:00 AM

Looking to get into backpacking?  Maybe shed a few pounds (in your backpack)?  Or just need a refresher?  Come out for a Sunday morning discussion on backpacking basics.  We'll discuss gear options, ways of cutting pack weight, leave no trace ethics, and all the basics you need to know.

We'll spend a couple hours talking about backpacking.  Then do a short hike in the afternoon if people are interested. Bring a chair to sit in and a lunch.

Where:  Silvermine parking area on Seven Lakes Drive in Harriman State Park

When:  10 A.M. April 21
