Backcountry Camping - Trip Plans
Possible Trip Plans
Now that you know your skill level and have considered your ideal trip plan, you are ready to plan your itinerary. The possibilities are endless, but we have put together over 100 possible trips, all of which can be traveled as they are written, or can be modified to meet your needs. While these plans tell you where to park, hike, and look for a campsite, they do not give you the level of detail that you will find in a good trail guide. You will need to purchase a topographic map anyway, so consider purchasing a guide as well.
