Backpack

Leave behind your over-civilized life and explore wild places few people will ever see. With little more than a compass and clothes, you and your fellow explorers will visit colorful slot canyons, remote lakes, and craggy Sierra peaks. You'll leave with a sense of accomplishment, plus some great stories.

Backpack trips range from relatively easy to strenuous. If you've never backpacked before, try one of our beginner trips, specially tailored to equip you with backpacking skills in a supportive, unhurried environment. See backpack ratings for difficulty levels.
