Backpacking for Beginners TRAIL HELP!
Return to Message Board
My boyfriend and I are getting into backpacking. I'm looking for an easy-moderate backcountry trail in the North/NW Oregon or South/SW Washington area for us to do when it starts warming up a bit.
We just got our packs, the stove, the other gear/equipment essentials, and have done our research, but just don't know where we want to go and what would be a good start for beginners.
We'd prefer something close to water sources (lakes, rivers) as we're really not interested in carrying our water in. Yes, we have a way to purify and filter our water.
Also, any yummy meal ideas outside of dehydrated eats would be nice.
Really, any tips would be much appreciated!
