Backpack IconJul 21-26 (Sun-Fri) Backpack in Colorado

(replace this text with a short description of the image)This year's July destination for mountain backpacking is the Uncompahgre Wilderness, southwest of Gunnison. The area's been called the "Switzerland of America." We'll hike a loop using trails by the East Fork and Middle Fork of the Cimarron River. One party will hike 18 miles in four days, including a 12,600' saddle separating the two drainage basins. Two other parties will hike the same trails plus a day hike to 14,301' Uncompahgre Peak, 29 miles in five days. This outing is strenuous due to the high altitude. Participants should have a previous multi-day backpacking experience. The outing is at capacity and closed to additional participants who have not spoken with the coordinator. Trip rated: Strenuous.

Bus Trip IconAug 29-Sep 3 (Thu-Tue) Pecos Wilderness Bus Trip

(replace this text with a short description of the image)End your summer with a bus trip to one of the Dallas Sierra Club's favorite backpacking destinations - the Pecos Wilderness in New Mexico. High in New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains, between Las Vegas, Santa Fe and Taos, the Pecos River flows fast and clear. Conifer and aspen forests and mountain meadows cover the land below alpine tundra at tree line. Elk, mountain sheep, black bears and marmots forage at high elevations in late summer. 

We have four great hikes that should satisfy any of your late summer backpacking cravings.

Our chartered bus fills up quickly, so don't delay. Send in your registration today!
