About the event
Setting up a multiday backpacking trip around the Steve Newman Worldwalker trail at East Fork State Park. My plan is to step off from the South Trailhead at 6pm on October 1st and spend some time sauntering around the lake enjoying the sites and spend two nights on trail finishing by 6pm on October 3rd. I have a general plan of daily mileages and stopping points and will be verifying those leading up to the start day and posting updates here. This will be a totally self supported multiday event and be prepared for mud, water crossings, and tick prevention.
