Wild Women’s Backpacking Overnight Along the Beautiful  Tecumseh Trail!

Join us for a beautiful fall backpacking adventure along the Low Gap and the Tecumseh Trail in Morgan-Monroe and Yellowwood State Forest. We’ll learn and practice Leave No Trace ethics, how to prepare meals in the backcountry, filter water, make fire and do it along side our favorite outdoor backcountry women! Grab your boots, your best friends and let us know what equipment you need. We will limit this to a small rad group so sign up today. DNK Presents will provide meals, water filteration systems, trowels, etc. Rental gear is available on a first come first serve basis, if you need/want gear sign up ASAP!
