Bellingham Ruck

ALDHA-West is partnering with the PNTA to bring a ruck to Bellingham, WA!

Join us for a fun day learning about all things long-distance hiking in the Northwest!

Breakfast, lunch, and snacks, will be provided!

This year's topics will include:

  • Gear panel discussion - From “cut the handle off your toothbrush” to “everything but the kitchen sink”, several experienced hikers will show what works for them.
  • Trail food and resupply overview plus a panel discussion - Get ideas and learn different ways to eat on trail.
  • Things that can end your hike - Expectation management, injury prevention.
  • Leave No Trace and Trail Town Etiquette
  • Pack shakedowns - Go through your gear with an experienced hiker for ideas to lighten your load. (Bring your full backpack if you'd like to participate!)
  • Learn from PNT thru-hikers how to tackle America’s wildest National Scenic Trail safely and responsibly
  • Breakout discussion groups focused on a variety of long trails across the west, including PNT, PCT, CDT, Oregon Desert Trail, and more
