When: April 23 and 24, 2022

Where: Harpers Ferry, WV

What to expect: Want to learn the ins and outs of long-distance hiking? Join other hikers for free workshops with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Harpers Ferry on Saturday, April 23. You’ll learn all things trail etiquette, foot care, preventing tick-borne illness and giardia, and even tips for hiking responsibly with your dog. And to sweeten the pot, stick around for the evening to hear a thru-hiker share her personal stories from the trail, listen to live music at the Barn, and enjoy a hot breakfast the next morning before a beautiful planned hike.

So what are you waiting for? Lace up your shoes and get ready for a good time! For more information about the Flip Flop festival, visit FlipFlopFestival.org/workshops to see full workshop details.
