Join our Park Ranger to learn the basics of backpacking and why preparation is key to any successful hike.  Learn how to properly plan for your adventure, including logistical aspects from equipment needed, to food and transportation.  East Ridge Outfitters of West Reading will have some different styles of backpacks to show and demonstrate, as well as essentials you should have in your pack for any trip.  Create a backpacking checklist, and learn how to properly pack your backpack.  Then we will use our skills on a moderate hike around the trails of Antietam Lake Park.  Wear good hiking shoes, and bring along water for this rain or shine workshop.
