Wild Women’s Backpacking Overnight

August 12 @ 10:00 am - August 13 @ 1:00 pm

$135.00
dnk presents, private group adventures, corporate team building adventures, adventures,

Let’s celebrate summer in the backcountry along the Low Gap Trail and the Tecumseh Trail. 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 and gear if you need it.

Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time.
