The ITA northern Idaho “Backpacking 101” clinic will provide a chance for new and experienced backpackers to get together and share ideas on how to better enjoy this sport. The clinic will include an overnight backpack to Plowboy Campground on the scenic west shore of Upper Priest Lake. We’ll hike about three miles on an easy trail to the campground, set up our tents and talk about tips, tricks, and other ideas on how to have more fun while backpacking in Idaho’s wild areas. We’ll also do trail work on #291 on both days.
