Backpack for spring break

Students looking for a fun way to spend spring break that they can join Outdoor Pursuits on a hike through North America's deepest river gorge: Hell's Canyon. This scenic hike along the Snake River is a great trip for the first-time backpacker as well as the seasoned long-distance folks. From the trailhead at Pittsburg Landing, they will hike upstream about 30 miles along rolling trails that lead through grasslands and ancient lava flows, all followed with a thrilling jet boat ride back to the van.

The cost is $100, and covers all the transportation - van and boat - for the trip. For more details, stop by the Outdoor Center in McLain Hall or call at Ext. 7809.
