Want to be adventuresome and explore amazing backcountry areas?

Dallas Sierra Club trip leaders with decades of backpacking experiences will present a comprehensive overview of backpacking topics, including packs, boots, tents, sleeping bags, food and cooking, clothes, wilderness ethics, sanitation and more. We'll include tips we wish someone had told us sooner to make backpacking more comfortable and less expensive.

Time: Saturday, September 15. The class begins at 10:00 AM and lasts until about 4:30 PM, with a break for lunch. Please arrive early to sign in and get settled. Buy lunch at the deli downstairs or bring your own and eat in the classroom.
