The "Coastal Trail" is one of the most scenic stretches of backpacking east of the Rockies. The rocky Superior coastline is a backpacking paradise. Students should anticipate moderate to challenging hiking, mastering backcountry living and travel skills, enjoying sandy beaches, and primitive camping on the week long adventure. We will have two patrols for this trip. Passport or equivalent is required.
August 17-24 (Prior to PASSPORT III)
Available Spots: 18

"I got to explore God's exciting physical beauty and peaceful silence while building community with other new students."
