Trinity Alps Backpacking Spectacular  - June 21-25, 2010

California's legendary Trinity Alps stand guard between the California of our imagination and the promised land of Oregon.  This unbeleivable area of wilderness, snow, deep blue lakes and rugged alpine scenery has beckoned adventurous backpackers for decades.  Catlin Gabel is offering a trip to this spectacular area for the first time.   Students will wander through the unforgettable backcountry, travelling on trails and cross country and perhaps scrambling up some of the easier peaks.  Previous experience backpacking is necessary, and students should be in good physical condition.   The trip will be characterized by a spirit of exploration and discovery as students plan the route to be taken and learn leadership and group living skills.
 
The trip is open to students ages 14-18
 
The cost for the five day trip is $195.
