  • Be prepared and confident to handle common challenges you will encounter leading groups on the trail.
  • Be ready to take the next steps to become a hike or backpack leader for the Mountaineers.
  • To set the standard for all runs. We realize that we have many very experienced leaders in the group; the want is to create a set is to get everyone, new and experienced, aligned to the same leading principles and expectations.
A major part of the session is built around discussion about common leadership decision-making challenges from real-life leader experiences.
