We've been introducing women to backpacking since 1978.
Our backpack trips are for you if you want the
independence, freedom, and challenge of carrying everything you
need for a trip in your pack. More importantly, when you backpack
you can really walk away from the world of automobiles into the
more remote and untouched parts of the wilderness.
Backpacking trips can be a revelation, as you do
without many of the things taken for granted in everyday lifeand
discover that you can.
Although backpacking can be more strenuous than
hiking with only a daypack, you don't have to be an Amazon to do
it and enjoy it.
On backpacking trips, food and group equipment
are divided equally among the trip participants for portage. A typical
pack weighs about 25 to 30 pounds on a short trip, and about 35
to 40 pounds on longer trips.
If you are new to backpacking, be sure to take
the free pretrip class which is included in your trip fee. You will
learn what to bring, and the best way to pack your backpack.
For weekend backpacking trips, we will focus on
superlight backpacks under 30 pounds. Superlight backpacking is
a new system that's convincing even hard-core backpackers to discard
gear and go light.
There are many wonderful experiences you can have
when you backpackbut one of the best is the feeling of accomplishment!

I started coming on trips. (Call of the Wild) accepts where you
are and gives you the space to grow and become an adept woman in
the wilderness.Carol Kulper
