Troop 54 will backpack a stretch of the Midstate we last visited in 2010. We will have great views as we pass Mount Hunger. We estimate approximately six miles of backpacking each day.

Use our Backwoods Camping List to make sure you don't forget anything. Be sure to include plenty of water. See other camping information on our Camping page. Don't forget to bring rain gear.
