This is an easy backpack that follows a stream-side trail into the wilderness. We will overnight camp adjacent to the stream at Little Creek. Once our tents are set-up there should be time to explore the area. Here's your opportunity to try out an overnight backpack trip into the wilderness. I have a backpacking equipment checklist if you are unsure about what you will need. Call or text me for it. [masked]

Please allow hikers who have never before backpacked the opportunity to sign-up for this backpack.

Drive time to the trail-head from EP/LC is about 3 hours. I will meet EP hikers wanting to carpool at the Starbucks/Kohls parking lot on the west side at 9am. I can meet LC hikers at the Whataburger on I-10 at about 9:45. Or you can drive to the trail-head on your own and meet-up at the trail-head parking area.
