Black Forest Trail Slackpack

July 28 @ 8:00 am July 31 @ 5:00 pm

Thruhike the Black Forest Trail with the Keystone Trails Association!

Take advantage of this incredible opportunity, to complete in ONE WEEKEND the trail that everyone talks about: The Black Forest Trail.                                    

Don’t worry about the plans, the maps, your meals, where you’re going to stay, or your heavy pack. The KTA Slackpack Program takes care of all that. Hike leaders will lead a carpool to the trailhead in the morning and back to camp at the end of the day, and lead or sweep the group along the trail. Lodging is provided at Pettecote Junction Campground, where breakfasts and dinners are home-cooked for the group, and lunches are prepared ahead of time. All you have to carry is a day-pack! In 3.5 days of hiking, you’ll have checked the BFT off your list, made friends, and maybe even shaved off some waistline.
