For Intermediate Level Backpackers – Two Nights –  18 Miles  –  Level 12     [Hiking Rating Scale ]

We will backpack what Backpacker Magazine has called the “crown jewel” of Monongahela National Forest, WV, through what “feels like the Canadian taiga wrapped in the South’s homeyness.” Cranberry Wilderness is a mix of alpine balds, rhododendron thickets, quartzite slabs, red spruce, and trout streams where you can expect to pass by the relics of old mining and logging camps. We will follow a trail that is completely encompassed by the backcountry with streams that are described as crystal clear, cold and sparkling.

This trip is Saturday to Monday, Memorial Day Holiday.  All trip details will be worked out by email the week before the trip.

Space is limited!  Please register early.
