Two night beginner backpack trip with preference given to members who have participated in one of Tacoma's Introduction to Hiking & Backpacking Sessions. This is an opportunity to check out how your equipment works and to refine your backpacking skills. Participants should be prepared to be self-sufficient, though leader may be able to arrange sharing gear if needed. Pre trip meeting will be arranged for consultation on gear choices and packing your backpack. We might run into snow given this year's weather patterns. Participants will share carpooling costs and Park entrance fee. We will meet in Tacoma at 7:30 a.m. Friday morning for carpooling to trailhead. Friday afternoon, after setting up camp, and Saturday we will do some dayhikes in the area. We will be returning Sunday afternoon, with a likely stop for a meal on the way home.
