TREK 2019
Columbus Day Weekend
October 11-14

For over 38 years the WVSTA has held an annual “Trek” Back Packing  trip the weekend of the Columbus Day Holiday as an annual fund raising event that benefits both WVSTA and a charity to be decided at this years annual meeting. 

WVSTA has over 45 years of experience conducting backpacking fund raising events, and would like to invite you to participate this years 3-day Trek

The TREK is designed to allow even the occasional backpacker to enjoy a wonderful weekend in the woods. New backpackers can take advantage of veteran backpackers’ expertise before the TREK and obtain advice on gear, food, and packing tips.

October seems like a long way off now but before you know it the green leaves of summer will be changing to the reds and yellows of fall and what better way to enjoy them than hiking in the mountains of Pocahontas County, WV. Hope to see you there.   

TREK Registration

Participants are asked to pay a registration fee which covers a T-shirt, a victory luncheon and snacks along the trail.  Each participant is also asked to raise at least $100.00 in donations. Your $30.00 registration fee received by Sept 30th reserves your collectible TREK t-shirt, snacks and victory luncheon. Reservations received after the deadline will not receive a t-shirt due to processing time on the shirts.
