Saturday, May 4th to Sunday, May 5th.

WHAT:
This is a one-night backpacking trip with Great Miami Outfitters to the Twin Valley Trail in Germantown Ohio. Whether you are new to backpacking or a seasoned hiker*, it’s a great opportunity to “GET OUT” and experience some trails, test your new gear, meet new people, get tips from others and have some fun. Load your pack and come out and enjoy. A suggested checklist for equipment, gear, clothing, food is available at the store. Each participant is responsible for all of their own needs. We’ll gladly assist or answer questions. This is a great way to get a taste of backpacking! Please dress for the weather, as inclement weather is possible. Some trails may be muddy.

We’ll hike about 5 miles on Saturday afternoon to our campsite, where we will set up and enjoy the evening with meals, a campfire and conversation. On Sunday morning, we’ll enjoy breakfast before breaking down camp, packing up and leisurely hiking out. (Please let the trip leader know if you plan to leave earlier.)

*Participants are responsible to know their own abilities and skills and are responsible for their own safety and comfort. Great Miami Outfitters will not make any such determination, however we will be happy to answer your questions or concerns. Outdoor activities may require some strenuous exercise.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

ABOUT THE TRAIL:
The Twin Valley Backpacking Trail combines the existing network of trails in Germantown MetroPark and Twin Creek MetroPark with a connection to create a longer, more integrated trail system totaling over 43 miles throughout 2600 acres.

Set in the rolling hills of the Twin Valley, the TVT provides a backpacking experience reminiscent of other wilderness trails with beautiful hills, babbling brooks, abundant wildlife, history and small town charm.

Secluded designated camping opportunities are sprinkled throughout this 22 mile trail that includes and connects Germantown MetroPark and Twin Creek MetroPark. Group and secluded backcountry camping will allow everyone to experience the wilds of the Twin Valley and this rural corner of Montgomery County like never before.
