Backpacking 101 Workshop -Experiencing the Mountains to Sea Trail

Join us on Sunday, May 19 along with guest speaker, Kimberly "Legs" Brookshire. In 2016, Kimberly decided to hike the 1,150 mile Mountains to Sea Trail across North Carolina. When she got to the end, she decided on a whim to turn around and hike back! She will be speaking on her solo hiking experience on the scenic trail in our own backyard. Kimberly has also hiked over 1,000 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, and will be returning to complete the trail this summer.

The great outdoors can be a wonderful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and stresses from everyday life. However, spending time in the wilderness, especially doing overnight backpacking trips, can be difficult and unnerving, not to mention dangerous, to those new to the experience. Here at Blue Blaze Brewing, we want to encourage folks to get outside and experience the serenity of nature by providing tips on safety and backpacking techniques. We are excited to be hosting monthly backpacking workshops with experienced backpacker and Appalachian Trail thru hiker, Heidi Nisbett.
