Description:

Are you a hiker looking to go on your first overnight hike? Then this trip is for you! I won't  promise that it'll be easy, but the area is beautiful and it'll be a good time. The total number of people on the trip will be dependent on how many experienced people end up joining. 

The plan is to camp at Brandywine Meadows on Saturday and hike up Brandywine Mountain the following day. There will likely be snow, so we may be camping and walking in snow! Brandywine Meadows is ~ 3 km from the trail head with 550 m of elevation gain, so the trail will be fairly steep at times. Brandywine mountain is approximately another 600 m of elevation gain from the meadows. 

Feel free to send me an email if you have questions!
