Hiking Essentials: Spring Series with the Appalachian Mtn. Club

Sunday, March 17th

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Interested in getting outdoors and hiking? Perhaps you want to hike with friends andfamily, hike for fitness, lower stress, achieve goals or simply to just have fun! Or, do you already hike, but wish to sharpen your skills? This class is for you!

Learn about gear, trip planning, map & compass basics, identifying and minimizing hazards and what to do if something goes wrong. This program is designed for those wanting to feel more comfortable hiking anywhere, from nearby local parks and rail trails, to more remote wilderness areas. After a short lunch break (BYOL), there will be a short and easy hike. Please bring a lunch, snacks, water and any gear you wish to use on the hike.

Cost is FREE; but registration is a must since space is limited. In order to comply with PA State Youth Protection laws, all children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
