Itinerary for John Muir Getaway Pack Trips




Each of the different departure dates will have their own specific itinerary, but all of them will follow the guidelines below:
- Your arrival and meeting at the Pack Station will be for 7:00am of Day 1 and most rides start at 7:30am. On the last day of the trip, a van takes you back to the pack station, generally around 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
- On the longer itinerary there are layover days where you can ride and explore the area from camp. Most of our camps also have opportunities for fishing during the day.-
Because the trip starts in the early morning, we highly recommend you make arrangements for an extra overnight in a local hotel the night before to experience minimum stress when finding the pack station and arriving on time.
