ATC's Third Thursday: How to Pack for an Overnight Hike

ATC's Third Thursday: How to Pack for an Overnight Hike

Overview
Locations

With a special guest from the A.T. Museum, this event begins with a discussion on what to put in your bag and how to pack it when you're preparing for a multi-day hike. After a demonstration from past thru-hiker and ATC employee Sara, Nate from the A.T. Museum will compare today's gear with some of the first backpacks used on the Appalachian Trail.

This hike will only be a half mile to the campsite and back, so a mile total. The terrain is even with some road crossings. The pace will be moderate. At the campsite, there will be a camp stove demonstration.

The event is free but registration is required:

The ATC's Third Thursdays series will run through November with a different event every month. Keep an eye out for future Third Thursday programs including How to Pack for an Overnight Hike, Music and a Movie, and a Moonshadow hike.
