West Rim Trail, PA – Backpacking Trip

June 23 @ 7:00 AM - June 25 @ 5:00 PM

This is a 2 night, 3 day backpacking event organized by the Niagara Frontier Chapter of the ADK Club. The West Rim Trail is normally hiked as a one-way trail, approximately 31 miles (approximately 10 miles per day) long, and is considered moderately strenuous due to the elevation changes required to hike the trail. Prior backpacking experience is recommended for this trip; inexperienced candidates will be included at the organizer’s discretion.

We’ll do a zoom meeting a few weeks ahead to settle on travel details and review gear requirements, as attendees are expected to be self-supported including meals and gear. The trip organizer can make recommendations on borrowing or renting gear at that time. The organizer will also be available in person at the May ADK meeting for a permethrin treatment of clothes for anyone who wants to tick-proof themselves for the hike.

Group size is limited to 10 persons. Restricted to ADK members and their guests. There is no rain date for this, we’ll plan on hiking in “liquid sunshine”.

Call or text the organizer, Jonathan Coupal, to RSVP or ask any followup questions. Deadline to RSVP on this trip is May 31, 2023.
