Fall 2018 Adventure Trips

Backpacking, Camping, and Hiking

Saturday, July 6 to Sunday, July 14, 2019
Great Basin National Park, NV

$625 / $675 to meet at the Las Vegas Airport
Sign-up By: Friday, 2/22
Pre-Trip Meeting: Thursday, 3/21 at 5:30 p.m.

In the summer of 2019, the outdoor rec team is venturing to a less visited National Park with a great variety of things to do and see. Great Basin is not the best name for this park as the Snake Mountain Range runs through the park! Highlights will include the 13,063 foot Wheeler Peak, complete with a glacier on it, the ancient bristlecone pine trees, Lehman Cave, and one incredible night sky! This trip will have one 3-day backpacking trip, one cave tour in the spectacular Lehman Cave, and four day-hikes of various lengths. No experience is necessary, but you do need to be in good physical shape by the time we leave. We will meet at the Las Vegas airport and then drive in a van up to the park. This will be an amazing trip!

Cost Includes:  van transportation from the airport, hotel on both ends of the trip, food while camping, group equipment, permits, camping fees, and a cave tour.

Space is limited to the first 10 people that sign up, so don't delay.
