Backpacking Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
July 10, 2017–July 14, 2017
Practice wilderness travel and outdoor skills as you traverse sandstone bluffs, beaches, sand dunes, waterfalls, and forests overlooking the spectacular, aquamarine waters of Lake Superior. You’ll see dramatic multicolored cliffs and unusual geologic formations such as Miner’s Castle in Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on a twenty-mile trek. Learn to navigate, set-up camp, cook, stay dry, administer basic first aid, and properly load your pack as we travel on the North Country Trail, America’s longest National Scenic Trail. By the end of the trip, you’ll have the skills necessary to plan and enjoy a backpacking trip of your own. Cost: $700 Register now!
