HAT Backpacks

Fri Mar 17, 9:00 AM - Sun Mar 19, 6:00 PM
Arkansas - Weather permitting or Texas if it rains

This will be a beginner backpacking course. Participants will be carrying all of their gear onto the trail and we will spend Saturday night at the mid-way point. There will be a mandatory pack check on Wednesday evening, March 15, at 7:00 pm to ensure that everyone has followed the pack list. We understand how difficult it may be to get to a centralized location, so we will have some sort of virtual connection available for the pack check as well. The pack list can be found at

Girls can borrow sleeping bags and backpacks in order to try out the sport. Sleeping bag supplies are limited, so let the coordinator know well in advance if you need to get equipment. (Sleeping bags must be 3 pounds or less and be rated down to 20 degrees.)

Participants will need to be fit enough to carry a 20 pound backpack for 4 to 5 miles.
