Backpacking – longer Sierra Trek prep (Weakliem)

May 20, 2023 @ 7:00 am - May 21, 2023 @ 3:00 pm PDT

Note – two overnight backpacking trips this weekend, a longer (this one) and (). Sign up for only one!
Since all of our backpacking trips have been foiled this year, this is going to be our only overnight preparation for the Sierra Trek! This particular one is intended for those hoping to go on the longer Sierra Trek (the final roster is not set…). We’ll be meeting Big 5 at 7am Saturday and doing a hike over Cold Springs trail to Cottam camp, about 8 miles, with several thousand feet of climbing/descending. For ST folks, in addition to your usual backpacking equipment, use a bear can (to get used to how to pack with it). Sack lunch for Saturday, and cooking is by patrols. If we can get a couple of parents to volunteer to drop us off, and pick us up at the trailhead, we’d appreciate it, as I’m not sure if we can park overnight there.
