These activities will be the same or similar for all 3 rewilding events. Participants must be able to hike 2.14mi with a somewhat steep slope and elevation gain of 750ft. We will be meeting in front of the Stevenson Union and walking 3/4 mi up Mountain Street to the trailhead. From there, we walk 1/4 mi South East up the dirt trail to the destination. After the activities, we will walk back to campus on the same route. Sign up now with the RSVP link.
