This hike overnight experience is for anyone who would like to try backpacking. Chris Whittemore isn’t Kevin Callan but she has a fair amount of backpacking experience. The terrain off of Milburn Rd. is rocky and rugged but not difficult to navigate. There are many ponds and rocky outcroppings. The total distance you will travel with packs will be 8km. Saturday we will hike in 4km where we will set up camp by a babbling brook. Sunday morning we will again hike 4km completing a circular loop. On Saturday we may hike to Miserable Lake. Prior to the hike Chris will communicate with all participants to discuss gear. Suitable for adults and teens.. No dogs please.
