first backpacking trip
Return to Message Board
My friends and I are planning our first overnight hike in the Columbia Gorge this summer. We've done a lot of hikes in the Gorge over the past two years, but nothing extremely hard. I was hoping someone had a suggestion as to a good first-time overnight trail to hike? We're also planning on making it into a slighter larger group (about six people), and the others aren't as conditioned as we are, so we'd like to keep the mileage a bit short :] Thanks for any help! PS: I'd appreciate any first time backpacking tips too!
