10 Essentials (strenuous)
These essentials have been proven to make that unexpected stay in the wilderness survivable. Learn how to use your knowledge instead of “dumb luck.” You don’t ever want to be caught unprepared for whatever the wild may throw at you. Learn how being prepared is made easy each time you set out on a day hike or a backpacking trek.
This hike will be predominately off-trail. The wilderness inside Mt. San Jacinto Park has many unique features that can’t be experienced while on the normal trail. In some places the terrain will be steep and slippery due to fallen tree debris.
This hike will be led by Wilderness Patrollers members of the Hasty Search and Rescue Team at Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness.
Cost: Registration is free. Tram tickets are $28.95 per adult. Remember, NHA members receive a 20% ticket discount!
Notice: To establish qualification this class is prerequisite for registration for the following two classes: Map and Compass on July 23 and Off Trail Mystery Hike on August 13. Both of these classes are rated STRENUOUS.
