TRAILLESS PEAK BACKPACKING
These trips are designed for those who have experience hiking and backpacking and who are looking for guided backcountry experience in pursuit of climbing the summits of the High Peaks. The group will hike into a base camp from which they’ll be guided up the “trailless” peaks. These courses will be a cooperative group camping experience led by a NYS licensed guide with the shared responsibility of camp chores, cooking, and decision-making.
