Backpacking in the Black Hills


Save the date! The backpacking trip is planned for June 22 at Badlands National Park. Our guides for this adventure are Luke Mickelson and Cindy Longmire, both experienced backpackers and employees of the GFP. We will meet on Saturday and backpack into the Badlands Wilderness, where we will set up camp for the night and do some exploring. On Sunday, we will pack up and hike back out. Participants can meet and camp at a Badlands park campground on Friday evening in advance of the backpacking on Saturday. Equipment can be borrowed from the GFP if needed for the backpacking portion of the event. More details to come in the near future. Hikers should plan on carrying a 20 lb pack, and hiking up and down slight to moderate inclines. Participants will be required to pay an entrance fee to the park.
