Dust off your backpacking gear as we experience the beauty of Raccoon Creek State Park. Orville Steininger will review the basics and lead us on a backpacking loop hike. We'll cover 4-5 miles the first day over moderate terrain with stops to historic landmarks within the park. Later we'll build a campfire, eat dinner, relax with a freshly brewed cup of sassafras tea, and then let the story-telling begin. On the second day, we will backpack 6-7 miles to the park office completing the loop. Along the way, we will stop to eat and talk about trees and edible wild plants. This is a great first time backpacking trip. Cost covers guides and campsite fee. Bring your own backpacking gear and food. Minimum age 16.
