Beginner Friendly Women's Backpack

Trip dates: Saturday, April 27, 2019 12:00 AM to Sunday, April 28, 2019 12:00 AM

Dust off your gear and join Boston Chapter Young Members (20s, 30s, and young at heart) for an early season backpack in north-western Connecticut! This is a beginner-friendly women's backpack. We'll hike at a pace on the slow side of moderate ~3 miles into camp, drop off some gear, then head out for an ~4.5 mile (round trip) hike to Mt. Frissell and Mt Brace. Along the way we will pass through three states, and over the Connecticut high point! On the second day, we'll take an ~4mi route over Bear Mountain back to the trailhead.

This is a good trip for women who have backpacked before, but it's been a while, or who haven't backpacked before, but are experienced hikers and would like to try it out. We're going to stay at a rustic cabin with bunks, so participants will not need to bring tents. If you are interested, but don't know if you have the right gear, please reach out to a leader with questions.
