Get ready for an awesome backpacking adventure with water falls, rivers, meadows, mountains and all the animals! We will kick off pretty early to make our way out to Roads End in Kings Canyon and backpack along the Kings River about 8 miles to a sweet campground. We’ll spend the night and hike back out the next morning to meet up with the rest of the SCO crew at Basecamp. Come prepared for some scrumptious (and cook-off winning) food, chilly nights, and lots of fun!
