Backpacking

Escape your over-civilized lifestyle and adventure into the wild with one of Sierra Club's backpacking trips! With minimal supplies, you and your fellow trip mates will go on backpacking adventures where you will get to see scenic slot canyons, remote lakes, and craggy Sierra peaks. You’ll depart with a feeling of achievement and some great memories.

Our backpacking trips, adventures, and vacations vary from beginner level to expert level. If you’ve never gone on a backpacking trip before, we suggest you start with one of our beginner backpacking trips. Our beginner-level  backpacking trips are specifically created to prepare you with essential backpacking skills in a supportive, relaxed environment. See our backpack ratings for difficulty levels.
