Join us March 19th and 20th for this excursion to Nebraska for the perfect beginning backpacking adventure! We’ve scoped out the trail, planned the camping spot and we’re prepared to guide you, support your experience on the trail and have a GREAT adventure with YOU! We will travel to Indian Cave State Park near Shubert, Nebraska. We will backpack a total of 9ish miles with gorgeous scenery of the Missouri River Valley. Although this is a beginning backpacking adventure, the trail is rated as moderately difficult with some definite inclines and declines. The trail winds through narrow hollows and up and along rugged ridges. Participants can choose to arrive Friday for a night of camping or to arrive to begin the backpacking adventure at 11am.
What are you paying for? We’ve done all the planning, made reservations, made contact with area park rangers and have a plan if an emergency arises. We’ve also pre-hiked and chosen a place to camp mid-way through the hike. We’ll ensure that we have filtered drinking and cooking water and together we’ll gather firewood for time around the fire before bed. In addition, we’ll provide you with a gear list and clothing suggestions so you will be prepared. Two experienced Dirty Girl Guides will be with you every step of the way!
