Beginner backpacking can be transformative – hiking out with everything you need on your own two feet is empowering. But it can be intimidating when you first get started, especially if you’re the first in your family or friend group to get out there. So we turned to our She Explores community for their advice.
With the help of listeners and Backpacking 101 author Heather Balogh Rochfort, we share stories of first-time backpackers, what they learned, and what they’d recommend you do differently your first-time overnight on the trail.
Whether you’re a seasoned backpacker or a beginner, there’s inspiration and a little magic to be found in this episode.
