​​What is weather like? ​With our trails being across two states it's hard to tell exactly what is happening where you are hiking. In general days will range from 50-75 degrees and nights between 32-45 degrees.

​​What is LNT? ​​LNT stands for Leave No Trace.  This is something that will be taught on every trip to ensure that we are doing our part to keep the forest the way we found it.  This involves packing out all forms of non-native trash.
​What happens right before trail? ​​Once you arrice at RMR's Base Camp you will meet your guides for the week and they will coach you about how to pack your backpack and what exactly you will need to bring.  After you're done packing there will be short Young Life Club before getting in your vehicles and making for the trailheads.
​​What happens when we get off trail? ​After your trip is over you will look to your guides to help you seperate all of your personal things from the gear you borrowed from RMR.  Once everything is seperated you will look to your guides for the "OK" and take pictures and say goodbye.  
​Can we stay at RMR's Base Camp?
​​Unfortunately RMR's Base Camp is in early stages of development and can only accomodate the Base Camp Staff and Guides going out on trail.  ​
