Boiling Springs A.T. Community hosts Third Thursdays: How to Pack For an Overnight

With a special guest from the A.T. Museum, this event begins with a discussion on what to put in your bag, and how to pack it, when you're preparing for a multi-day hike. After a demonstration from past thru-hiker and ATC employee Sara, Nate from the A.T. Museum will compare today's gear with some of the first backpacks used on the Appalachian Trail.

This hike will only be a half mile to the campsite and back, so a mile total. The terrain is even with some road crossings. The pace will be moderate. At the campsite, there will be a camp stove demonstration. 

The event is free but registration is required:
