We’ll meet at Skyline Sno Park and then drive to the woods to scout for about 3-4 hours. If time, weather, and energy levels permit, we will scout a second location so you can learn another type of terrain.

  • Water and lunch
  • Notepad with pen/pencil
  • Long sleeve shirt

What we provide:

Transportation info:

Most any car with a hatchback or bigger will be fine. Small cars with trunks may struggle on gravel, and there is a very short section where they might bottom out on the potholes. I’m driving my Rav4 and have room for 3 passengers, so carpooling may work.
