Women’s Backpacking

August 18 - August 21


Designed for women of all ages. If you have always dreamed of backpacking but don’t have the gear or knowledge than this trip is for you. Yes, you will work hard but, you will have the experience of a lifetime. Backpacking will challenge you physically, mentally and spiritually. The mountains are a special place to get in touch with your authentic self and challenge those voices that keep you from reaching your potential. We create a safe environment where you can be yourself and face your challenges in a non-judgmental and supportive environment.

This year we will explore a section of the Grafton Notch Loop. Starting from the trail head in Newry Maine we will hike the Eastern portion of the Loop Trail. This section of the trail crosses four peaks, has four tent sites and a lean-to on the Appalachian Trail. The Baldpate traverse is one of my favorite sections of this trail. Wide expansive views of the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the mountains of Western Maine surround you as you walk this exposed, rocky ridge line. Alpine meadows filled with wildflowers and wild blueberries will be an added treat.

This is a challenging trip.  You must be in good physical condition.
