Here at Redline Guiding we have always celebrated diversity and are continually learning how to create inclusive community spaces in the outdoors. Thus, we’re pleased to announce an exclusive LGBTQIA+ Wilderness Backpacking Experience. This is a steeply discounted opportunity to explore and learn about backpacking in the White Mountain National Forest. Lead on this Project is Redline Guide Jess Kowalski. The LGBTQIA+ community is one of several Jess is involved with and passionate about. This trip will be a mild to moderate level of difficulty. Day one will include about 4-4.5 miles with less than a 1000′ of gain. Day two would be about six miles with about 2000′ of gain. And day three will be the same as day one, except going downhill instead of up.
