This unique adventure links together several exciting trail networks in New Hampshire’s Piedmont and Southern Green Mountains. Its route, running through the heart of Kroka’s adventure area, has a unique variety of terrain and rich cultural features. After two days of conditioning on local trails and preparing for expedition, we will begin a 10-day journey northwest. Along the way we will pick berries, cliff-jump in refreshing swimming holes, scramble up rock faces, and share nourishing meals cooked over the fire. We will also face many challenges: ferrying our bikes across the river in a canoe, helping neighbors with a service project, and testing our navigation skills as we wind our way from one forest trail to the next. Finally, we will reach a spectacular underground cave which will test our bravery, strength, and teamwork, inspiring a sense of wonder and awe for the world.
This is a moderate, vehicle-supported expedition on a combination of single and double tracks with a mix of dirt roads. Students will carry light loads. For students who have completed No Brakes or have other prior mountain biking experience.
