Get back outside with ODR for an overnight introductory “solo” backpacking expedition from Two Harbors to Parsons Landing (21 Nov) or Shark Harbor (5 Dec) on Catalina Island. These trips will be focused on teaching/guiding participants in the skills and gear needed to facilitate their own solo adventures in the back country. We will depart for Catalina on Saturday morning and arrive at Two Harbors, from there we will be hiking overland through the beautiful Catalina back country to a beach campsite (Pearson’s on the 21st, or Shark Harbor on the 5th) spending a night beach camping under the stars hiking back Sunday morning and departing Catalina. Both trails are strenuous and good physical condition is required. All the necessary gear (backpack, stove, tent, sleeping bag/pad etc.) will be provided.
