Massachusetts: Lighten that Pack!

May 1 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Trail Ambassadors Julie LePage and Philip Werner for a talk and gear demo about how to let go of the extra gear/weight in your backpack for lighter, longer, more enjoyable hikes this summer.

Do you find yourself saying, “but I neeeed this”, when packing extra sets of nearly everything in your backpack? Join Julie and Philip as they offer tips on overcoming the obstacles to hiking lighter, what the tradeoffs are to carrying less, and guidance on packing lighter & smarter, so you can enjoy your time in the woods even more. We’ll have a well-stocked auditorium of lightweight gear for show & tell & touch, as well as resources on “MacGyvering” your own lightweight items
