WANT to try something a little different on the trail this year? Try TRAMPS R US.
Canyons, creeks, ravines, bluffs, off-trail, rocks, sage, different!
Tramps offer mostly off-trail adventures, including way finding and exploration. GPS’ are allowed, you just can’t turn them on. Our pace is a little slower, allowing time to feel the beauty of the magnificent locations we frequent. We often do scrambles, with safety as a priority. Good physical condition is required. Tramp leaders spend a great deal of time “researching” areas and routes to some very interesting places, usually in the Mara, Tranquile, Dewdrop and Savona terrain.
Tramp leaders are Paul Battjes and Ernie Carson. Ernie comes with many years of mountaineering, orienteering and outdoor experience and has been a KHC member for several years.
Paul likes to collect rocks. He spends most of his time in Dewdrops, Mara and Tranquille Creek area exploring, canyon crawling and boldering. A few years ago, he and his family walked the Camino in Spain an 800 km. stretch of mountains and desert.
