This group is for overnight backpacking trips in Utah and nearby states. Based out of Salt Lake City, we will run backcountry and especially wilderness backpacking trip with small-sized groups (4-8), well-suited to backcountry travel.
Backpacking means carrying your camping gear on your back (in, um, a backpack!). If you're looking for day hikes, there are plenty of those in other outdoors groups. If you're looking for bikepacking (yup, carrying your camping gear on your bike), please look up our sister group -- SLC Bicycle Touring and Bikepacking.
Despite the title of the group, not all trips will be in formally designated wilderness (many, not all). But they will definitely be in the backcountry.
Some trips will be dog-friendly, based on destination and leader's preference. (The lead organizer is a dog lover so we'll have at least some dog-friendly trips.)
We'll seek to run at least one overnight or weekend trip per month from March to November, and more as we gather other trip leaders.
