Event Information

Description

 

We are opening this trip at 8pm 10/1/19! Please sign up and we will reach out to the first 5 participants in the order that they signed up to ask for payment. Depending on if we have enough cars in that first 5, we might have to use the 5th person's spot for someone with a car. Keep in mind, if you aren't able to leave early enough on Friday, you might not be able to come on this trip.

 

 

We are going backpacking to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore (PRNL)!

Hello everyone!
We are doing a Fall Colors backpacking trip in the beautiful shores of Lake Superior to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore! A true midwestern gem. 

Leah and Evan are leading a crew of Hoofers a backpacking/camping trip the weekend of Fri. Oct 18 through Sun. Oct 20. Hopin’ to see some great fall colors!

 

This is a BP2 (intro) level trip with the Hoofer Outing Club.

***You do not need any prior backpacking ratings or experience to sign up for this trip!

Keep in mind, if you want to go on a big BP4 Spring Break trip in 2020, you first need to go on one BP2 trip regardless of skill level or prior experience.

 

We have room for 5 participants (not including leaders), but we might open it to more if we get more leaders/cars!

***We have increased this to 8 participants, we got another leader on board and another car from a participant, so we opened it up to 3 more people***

 

Trip Deposit: ~$70

Important: This trip will open for sign up on Tuesday, October 1 at 8 PM.
