Enjoy hiking but never learned how to read trail blazes or buy the right gear? Want to know what the 10 essentials are? How about the different types of backpacking, like comfort-driven or ultralight? This is the class for you! Just in time for the Young Professionals hiking season to begin in June, we are delighted to have YP Volunteer and hiking expert Duncan Cheung lead a class at REI SoHo for our group. Duncan will cover short backpacking too, with a healthy focus on what's doable around NYC and NE, weekend (overnight) trips, and going lighter. Attendees will be able to submit their questions in advance, and we are looking forward to a session that is interactive and question-driven. Duncan will even tell us about some of his local, trail-tested favorite hikes!
