We’ll start our day with a primitive navigation workshop. We’ll learn the different types of primitive navigation techniques and their uses. We’ll also review map and compass basics.

Then, we’ll hike out to Pine Meadow Lake. The Trail Conference identifies this area as one of the most in-need of trail cleanup. We’ll provide all the tools, and you’ll spend the afternoon enjoying nature while helping improve these trails for all.

50% of all profits will be gifted to the Trail Conference. The Trail Conference is a non-profit organization committed to publishing accurate trail maps and guides, building and maintaining a comprehensive trail network, and supporting advocacy, conservation, and stewardship throughout the region.

Learn, hike, do something good!
