Intro

Have you ever dreamt of going on an epic journey?  Great adventure holds more than we can imagine, and through challenge and adversity the mountains, valleys, counselors, and waters will be our teachers on this quest. 

 

Overview

On the trail we will be fueled by nutritious natural & organic food; solid breakfasts, lots of snacks, tasty lunches, and hot suppers as delicious as any you might have from the kitchens of Camp Augusta (if you are new to camp, know that we have great food!)  As we hike through wilderness areas we won’t see any sign of humans, except our lone trail and other hikers.  We might even encounter a legendary through-hiker: brave souls who spend many months hiking the PCT from Mexico to Canada. 

 

Challenge 

Experience: Adventure – This is an advanced trip for folks who have done a Classic or Explore trip, or have other backpacking experience.  If you have spent time in the wilderness and want more, this can be a great trip for you!

Endurance: 2 - We will be doing a lot of hiking with significant elevation gain and loss.  At the start of the journey our packs will be heavy with food and we won’t be used to being active at 7000 feet.  This rugged journey will make us stronger and if you haven’t back packed before you may want to look at our Sierra Nevada Alpine or Lassen National Park, trips for an enjoyable adventure.
