|Camp N Pack Weekend|
Every other year we offer a hike in the Berkshires for campers that would like to do a longer hike with their dogs. THIS IS A HIKE YEAR SO TAKE FRIDAY OFF FROM WORK AND WALK IN THE WOODS WITH YOUR BEST BUDDY!
If I am going on the Friday hike, how will I know when and where?
If you plan to hike on Friday you will receive an email the week before the hike with details about where and when to meet. The hike usually takes place at a State forest near Camp Timber Trails. The hike will be approx. 10 miles in length at a moderate pace with rest stops as needed. The terrain is usually moderately hilly. The trail conditions will vary from wooded trails to dirt roads. The hiking time with lunch and breaks will be approx. 5 hours. After the hike we will make sure that you find your way to Camp Timber Trails. (Remember that you can use this as qualifying hikes towards a working pack dog certificate- bring your dog packs fully loaded and pre-weighed.)
What should I bring?
Don't forget to bring plenty of water for your dog (and you), your dog's tags and proof of vaccinations (the park rangers may ask to see proof of your dogs rabies shot). For yourself, make sure you wear proper footgear and comfortable clothes. Please dress for the weather- we hike rain, shine or mud! Don't forget to pack a lunch!
