July 15-20 Silver Knapsack Backpacking Trip

Details by Shadow Fire Patrol.

Meet at the Church at 6am Saturday.

This is a long-term backpacking trek in the lower elevations of the Sierra.  Camp Whitsett and Golden Trout Wilderness areas.

Must have gone backpacking multiple times before and must be able to complete a week-long backpacking trek.  Adult leaders will offer advice to any Scouts (and parents) who are not ready for a trip like this in 2017 of how to prepare for trips in future years.  Trekking requires endurance as the loads are heavier, the days are longer, and the location is more remote than weekend trips.  Elevation will be between 8,500' and just over 10,000'.  Some days could be between 9 and 13 miles with full backpacking packs depending on trail and site selections.

Special High Adventure Patch from our Council if you meet the requirements.
