4th Annual ALDHA-West Cascade Ruck Feb 25th, Cascade Locks

It's Ruckin' Season
The American Long Distance Hiking Association-West (ALDHA-West) is proud to host our 4th annual Cascade Ruck at the Cascade Locks Marine Park Pavillion on Feb 25t this year. More information can be found at http://www.aldhawest.org/event-2369117

What is a Ruck you ask? A ruck is a day long workshop designed to help those new to long distance hiking or wanting to gain valuable insight from long distance hikers to come learn about topics like lightening your pack, food and nutrition for hiking, section hiking the PCT, Leave no Trace and town etiquette and more. We have one on one pack shake downs with an experienced thru-hiker to help you see what you might be able to leave at home and still be comfortable.

this year we also have trail specific break out sessions for the PCT, CDT, JMT, PNT and the Wonderland trail so you can ask a veteran from one of these trails anything you like to help with your own hike.

Jeff Garmire will be presenting about his Calendar Year Triple Crown hike ( he hiked the PCT, CDT and AT all in one year).

Breakfast and lunch included, and free happy hour provided by Thunder Island Brewing
