[wptab name=’Moderate (M)’] Trips that are given a “Moderate” designation are perfect if you feel that an “Easy” or “Challenging” trip isn’t right for you. These trips are best suited to individuals with limited outdoor wilderness experience or those looking for more adventure than an “Easy” trip offers. Individuals will be challenged with longer day and multi-day activities, more challenging routes and increased exposure to the elements but will be rewarded by travelling through more remote areas with stunning scenery.

IMGP2031Hiking: These hiking trips provide a great transition from an easy trip into something a bit more technical and further off the beaten track. You will get to journey to remote areas through diverse landscapes on unique and varying types of terrain. Trail systems can be single track over rough terrain with tight corners and steeper inclines and descents. These trips enable you to see the back-country and the beauty nature has to offer without having to traverse goat trails and narrow ridge-lines. It is an excellent way to get the full backcountry wilderness experience without putting yourself into a position where you may feel uncomfortable on a “Challenging” trip designation.broken group island aug 13-18 2008 bruce, clayton and march family (187)
