Backpack IconJul 10-14 (Mon-Fri) Lost Park Loop, Colorado

(replace this text with a short description of the image)Sorry, this outing has reached its capacity. Please consider the Labor Day weekend trip to backpack in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Pecos Wilderness. Backpack a loop of 28 miles in five days in the Tarryall Mountains, Lost Creek Wilderness Area, Pike National Forest. The Lost Park Trailhead is 20 miles east of US Highway 285, near Fairplay and 3.5 hours from the Denver Airport. Drive or carpool to and from the trailhead on the weekends before and after the hike or make this a fly/drive. Camps will be at elevations of 9,000' to 11,000'. This remote, forested loop is characterized by granite knobs, a creek that disappears and resurfaces nine times and some great campsites. Due to duration and altitude, backpacking experience is required. Express interest by phone or email to receive details and registration forms. The outing is limited to two parties of twelve, hiking in opposite directions. There's no fee for this outing--just personal expenses for getting to and from the trailhead. Registration and approval are required.   Trip rated: Moderately Strenuous.

Volunteers with decades of experience leading trips will present a comprehensive range of backpacking topics with candor--packs, tents, sleeping bags, food, what to wear, water treatment and lots more. They'll share tips to improve your comfort and keep gear affordable. Unlike stores that offer basic classes, we're not selling merchandise. 

This class will be especially helpful for new backpackers on the Labor Day trip to the Pecos Wilderness, the February trip to Big Bend National Park or other outings through spring 2018.  We'll schedule at least one fall outing with spaces reserved for people completing the August 12 class. 

Location: Whole Foods Market, Preston Road at Forest Lane, Dallas (map)

Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Cost: $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members. You can register and pay on-line here or you can show up and pay at the door if the class space remains available. Interested or have questions? Please contact the class coordinator.
