Christmas is less than a week away. Let’s see what backpacking gear you really need Santa to bring. During this 9 mile out and back hike along the shore of Philpott Lake you’ll have the opportunity to experience every aspect of an overnight trip minus the overnight element. We’ll review all the basics needed to get you on the trail in the new year, from camp setup to meal cleanup to proper backpack fit. Participants please bring your backpack fully loaded as if you were going out for an overnight trip as well as your own meals. A checklist will be sent out prior to this enjoyable day trip. $13.00. Ages 10+, Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult
