Learn How to Backpack at Cloudland Canyon State Park
Perfect practice makes perfect. This overnight backpacking class takes place at one of Georgia’s most scenic State Parks. Participants will experience an 8-mile round trip overnight backpacking adventure. Enjoy viewing thousand-foot deep sandstone capped canyons, seasonal waterfalls, cascading creeks, and nature's best woodland flora and fauna.
Along the way, participants will “perfectly” practice packing a backpack, setting up camp, filtering drinking water, cooking back-country style, and building campfires around which memories will be made. This is an excellent adventure for beginner hikers and campers. Guests will each carry a 35 pound pack up to 5 miles per day.
