Backpack - The Enchantments

This is my first time in the enchantments and would like to take only those who haven't experienced this wonderful place.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 18.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 6,500 ft

This will be determined later and communicated thru e-mail.  The group will need two vehicles at site to accommodate the route.

If your interested and haven't been to the enchantments, please send me a list of hikes completed this year, any recent backpacking activities and the reason you desire to attend this event.  This is a scheduled five day activity with various side trips along the way to truly experience all the enchantments have to offer.  Please note, there is a cost of attending this trip.  I will be looking to recover only the cost of the associated entry fees.
