If you've always yearned to try backpacking, but didn't have the confidence to do it on your own, here's your chance to try a local weekend trip . We are working with Kane County Forest Preserve to offer a backpacking even created especially for novice backpackers with limited outdoor experience.

Details: This 2 night/3 day adventure will include an "Introduction to Backpacking" training session, guided backpacking to the campsites, travelogues, naturalist-led hikes, chef-prepared meals, and evening campfires. Your guides will be an outdoor adventure leader from Rocktown Adventures and a District naturalist. Expect to hike 3-5 miles per day over gently rolling terrain with packs weighing up to 35 pounds. All meals and group gear are included. A personal gear list will be provided to all registrants.

Price: $299. Registration is required and full payment is required at the time of registration. Call 630-444-3191 or email programs@kaneforest.com with any questions or to register. Registration will be taken up until May 29. WE ARE NOT TAKING RESERVATIONS FROM THIS LISTING. IT IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.
