I'm 51 and have been shedding weight and getting in shape, and would like to start backpacking. My last overnight backpack was more than 30 years ago. I've collected some fairly decent wet weather gear and can handle overnight temps down to freezing or a bit below. I'd like to start with one-night trips, no more than 10 miles in, 10 out. I'm looking through the trail maps, but I thought I would get suggestions from the more experienced hikers. Thanks!
