Among the Ancients

ages 12-14
Average daily mileage: 5.5

This trip covers lots of ground on a route that will take us to the tallest ridges and mountaintops in the Opal Creek Wilderness: vantage points that offer a glimpse of the magnificent Cascade mountains. From these heights we’ll have a birds’ eye view of the stages a forest goes through recovering from fire, and learn about forest succession and ecosystem resilience. We’ll put miles under our feet so come prepared with broken-in boots and backpacking experience.
