Granite Chief Backpacking Trip

July 19 @ 8:00 am - July 21 @ 5:00 pm

Join ARC board member Scott Vail for this 25-mile hike from Headwaters Camp counterclockwise through the major trails of the Granite Chief Wilderness. The Wilderness is sparsely traveled, has great views, and seldom-seen areas. On Sunday we will do minor brushing on the last 2-3 miles of the trail back to the camp in recognition of the 35th Anniversary of the ARC. This is an advanced hike due to downed trees and the need to hike at least 8 miles a day. There are numerous climbs, one of about 1000 feet over 1.5 miles. The elevation is between 6000 and 8000 feet. Rain or shine. Experienced hikers ages 16+ welcome. Well-behaved dog on-leash OK. Meeting location TBD. FREE. A detailed email will be sent once you register online.
