Immerse yourself in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire! You’ll spend the first night at Mendums Pond getting to know your small group and preparing for your backpacking adventure. On the morning of the second day, you’ll head to the White Mountains for 3 nights of backpacking! Each day you’ll hike 4-8 miles through scenic wilderness, exploring forested valleys, rocky peaks, and cascading waterfalls. You’ll carry all of your gear and spend each night at primitive backcountry campsites. You’ll develop backcountry skills and learn how to work with your group to meet the unique challenges of the trail.
During the trip, there will be time for hanging out and getting to know your group, leaders, and all about UNH! You’ll return to Mendums Pond to spend the final night with the entire PAWs community to reflect on your experience.
Haven’t backpacked before? No backpacking experience is necessary—our highly trained leaders will teach you all you need to know! You should however have hiking experience and be prepared for long strenuous days. These trips are challenging but highly rewarding and very fun!
