Itinerary

Day 1: Family Backpacking in the Cascades

We begin at the trailhead and venture into the wooded hills of the Cascades. At a comfortable pace we will hike and discuss backpacking and outdoor safety skills. When we reach our destination we will make camp and demonstrate how to cook in the backcountry. This is a great opportunity to learn about choosing foods and planning ahead to leave no trace. Choose to relax by the lake or take an evening stroll without backpacks and watch the sunset.
