Wait a minute…. What is a thru-hike? Thru-hiking is a specialized form of backpacking that is more focused on long-distance and high daily mileage in order to complete a trail within a given time frame compared to most backpackers who take a weekend or weeklong trips.
CorpsTHAT’s Thru-hiking class will take place once per week for two weeks, starting during the first week of March and ending during the second week of March from 7 pm to 8:30 pm EST.
