Hiking 101 – October 27

October 27, 2018

Ontonagon, MI – This introductory hiking program is perfect for those who want to begin hiking, but don’t know where to start. We will cover hiking gear, clothing, nutrition, map and compass use, and minimal-impact techniques. We will also spend a little time on backpacking equipment, camp stoves, shelters and other backpacking-related techniques for those who are also interested in backpacking.

The last half of the day will be a 4-mile guided hike in the Porkies. The hike will be moderately difficult, with terrain that will include muddy trails, elevation and uneven surfaces. This will be trail hiking!

Cost is $45. We will provide lunch. Participants will also receive a Porkies trail map and orienteering compass.

Participants should wear hiking footwear and appropriate clothing for the Porkies in October, and should bring rainwear, a water bottle, trail snacks, and a daypack or backpack.… Read the rest
