Many TOC members have asked me to run an easier backpacking event, an event that does not require previous backpacking experience. This is such an event! It's perfect for getting into backpacking and practicing key backpacking skills.
So signup preference will be given to members without prior backpacking experience. You must be a strong day hiker, with at least 5 D4 or D5 hikes under your belt. You must also be committed to preparing for this trip (planning and packing for backpacking events takes time!) and attending the mandatory pre-trip meeting (details below).
We will depart from Toronto Friday afternoon and camp overnight at the Mew Lake campground in Algonquin Park. On Saturday morning we will head out to the Highland backpacking trail.
We will spend Saturday and Sunday backpacking the 1st loop on the trail. Total distance is about 19km. We will return to Toronto late on Sunday evening.
Please review the following very carefully to avoid disappointment:
