Andy shared his knowledge and led in a very polite and professional way throughout the trip. He went above and beyond to see all participants were safe, learning and enjoying the trip. The materials provided were extremely useful. Am not certain anything should be changed however I would like to be able to attend again, perhaps enjoying a longer hike.Diana B.

The trip was very informative and answered many questions that I had about backpacking. The park was lovely and had great terrain. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I would do this trip again and recommend it to others who were interested in backpacking. Thank you!Robbin C.
