Intro to Hiking and Backpacking

September 11 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

$20

Join us at Compass Point on Wednesday September 11th, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:30pm for an extensive discussion of hiking and backpacking gear.  We will also discuss training for increased endurance and distance.

We will display and discuss gear used for shorter day hikes as well as backpacking trips. In addition, we will share favorite destinations right here in Kansas. You will leave with an increased knowledge of hiking and preparing for the hike.  We will measure you to determine the appropriate sized pack for your torso and height. You will leave with several handouts for reference as you build your hiking practice.

Participants will also receive 10% off any purchase related to hiking/backpacking at the end of class.
