We’re planning a backpacking trip this fall. If you’d like to join (no experience necessary!) fill out this doodle poll to let Reed and Mario know when you’re available!
Weekend Backpacking Trip
TBD Friday, 7PM to Sunday, 5PM (https://doodle.com/poll/tyenee29zadkyvez)
Zaleski State Forest
Cost: – (food and gear)
Did you know Pier Giorgio Frassati, our group patron, was an avid outdoorsman? He loved rock climbing, camping, hiking, and encouraging others to spend time in God’s beautiful creation.
Join us for a weekend hiking and camping in the tranquility of Zaleski State Forest. Whether you’re an experienced backpacker or have just entertained the idea, this will be fun and doable for all. We will be hiking 10-15 miles over the course of 3 days. The plan is to get there Friday evening and camp close to the trailhead. Saturday will be our main hiking day (~10 miles), and Sunday will be around 7. We plan on getting back to Columbus in time for an evening Mass, 4:30 or 5pm. Experienced hikers will most likely have extra gear that can go around to others (if willing to share, please let us know), and we will be providing a list of equipment needed, along with provisions.
Reed and Mario have over 300 backpacking miles under their feet on trail. If you have any questions at all, contact Reed (on trail he is known as Bulldog) or Mario (trail name TBD).
If interested, please participate in the doodle above for available weekends in September.
