Do you like the idea of packing everything you need for a weekend on your back, and carrying it a few miles into the wilderness but find it challenging getting others to go with you?
We have two great solutions for you!
- We’ll soon be offering paid guided backpack trips for beginners. Check back in the near future for an update. Our trips will be led by experienced backpackers to help shorten your learning curve to help avoid some of the more common mistakes we’ve all likely made at some point in our travels. There will be a good range of hikes for different skill levels including some nice, easy, introductory trips as well as some more intense up and down hikes. The great part is each hike will have a good summary of what you can expect and you decide what works best for you.
- If you’re a more experienced backpacker and want to join others just like you try our Meetup group where volunteers post trips about once a month.
Also, even though we’re based out of Richmond, don’t let it prevent you from signing up if you live elsewhere in Virginia. Trips will be led in all regions of the state and as long as you’re willing to travel to a destination we’ll be glad to have you join.
