The City of Pocatello Outdoor Recreation is offering a beginning backpacking wilderness experience, July 30 – August 1, 2021.  The trip is designed to get people who have never been into the backcountry out for a 2-night wilderness experience.

At a pre-trip meeting, scheduled for June 22 at 6:00 p.m., the group will meet to discuss equipment and expectations well in advance to give everyone time to boost their fitness and go shopping.

The post on the City website states, “The exact route is not determined until the group gets together but expect reasonable mileage, a lake and 4 hours of van time on each end.”

The $120 per person costs covers “transportation, permits and parking, wag bags and group gear like water treatment.  It does not cover food, camping equipment and Sherpas.  More experienced participants are welcome.”
