Although open to all club members over age 18, this trip is also part of the B3 backpacking Building Blocks series and eligible for B3 course graduation credit. In addition, this backpack will have a practical instructional/learning focus and offer experience in proper gear use and camp set-up techniques.

Pre-trip assistance with gear selection, food planning, and gear sharing will be included in leader emails prior to the trip.

The cost of the water taxi will depend of the number of people signed-up for the trip. It will range from approximately $30.00 to $50.00, per person, round trip plus tax.

We will need a car-shuttle, for the distance between Ross Lake Boat Launch and Canyon Creek TH on US-20 (< 10 miles).

This is bear country: Bear-proof canisters are mandatory on this trip.

Numerous water supply locations on most sections of trails. Planned Pace: 2.0 mph.

Due to unknown snow conditions for the time of the trip, the destination may need to be changed to an area with less snow.

I will send regular updates to all those signed-up, advising of any changes to the destination.
