Appalachian Trail Backpacking at Max Patch

Enjoy one of our favorite sections of the Appalachian Trail on this 3 day, 2 night backpacking trip!  The goal of this trip is provide a supportive environment for anyone to experience backpacking, whether it is your first trip or your 100th!  This hike is approximately 20 miles over mostly rolling terrain, with a couple of challenging uphill sections.  Participants will learn all necessary skills to complete a backpacking trip, and will leave empowered to hit the trail again soon. Because this itinerary is considered moderate difficulty, it is a good first backpacking trip for people with hiking experience or a regular fitness routine.  It is also tons of fun for people with backpacking experience to share their love for the trail with others.
