Get unplugged during a beautiful weekend backpacking in Sequoia National Park. You’ll explore the world’s biggest trees and the expanse of the south Sierra Nevada adventureland. This four-day trek will bring cool nights, jaw-dropping views, and a healthy dose of Out Living It to fill you up!

Accommodation: Camping in your own tent

Length: 4-day 3-night

Meals: Meals for the backpacking portion of the program are covered by the outfitter. Make sure to bring any special snacks or goodies you like to have to keep you going!

Gear: REI will supply all of the gear for the program (more info), but participants are asked to have their own backpack and personal items. Participants should make sure they have sturdy, close-toed hiking shoes that they have worn in before the program.
