Join us for the first time ever in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness! Over the course of seven days we’ll hike to several alpine lakes and enjoy majestic vistas over the glacial fields of Mt. Jefferson. This trip is designed to expand on previous backpacking experience. We will practice basic wilderness first aid, map and compass navigation, and backcountry cooking. Each hiker will work with trip instructors to take on “leader of the day” responsibilities, building your confidence and skill as a backcountry leader.
