How To Plan A Backpacking Trip

 


My friend asked me to share some tips on How To Plan A Backpacking Trip. So I created an outline/checklist and we held a zoom session during which I shared how I plan a trip using various websites, google docs, apps, AllTrails.com and other resources. This session was unrehearsed and recorded live.

During the first hour, we go through the checklist and I explain some basic principles. During the second hour, I turn the session over to my friend and she plans her first backpacking trip to Lost Maples State Nature Area. The session was long, but I think that my friend is now ready and stoked to get out on the trail. You can download my trip planning outline/checklist at this link: Backpacking Trip Planning Checklist
You can view a 3 day / 2 night backpacking trip itinerary and route for Lost Maples State Nature Area that I created using my method at: Lost Maples Backpacking Trip
