Backpacking InformationMinimize

The WTC does 2 or 3-day trips from April through November to picturesque mountain areas. Most trips are moderately strenuous and vary in length from 5 to 10 miles per day. Recent trips have been to north-central Pennsylvania, Massanutten Mountain and Shenandoah National Park, VA, and VA, MD, PA, NJ, OR NY sections of the Appalachian Trail.

Trips are planned at an open meeting each February attended by all interested to discuss possible destinations and dates, and help suggest/select leaders.  An orientation meeting is also scheduled in March or April for new hikers who want to get started as backpackers.  See the Bulletin or Backpacking calendar for details. The full schedule is usually available in March.  Email if you have any general questions about the WTC backpacking program.
