Scenario Session – Peak to Plains Trail

This class is only for those who are interested in pursuing becoming a CMC trip leader. It is a prerequisite before leading a Leader in Training Hike and getting signed off as a CMC leader. As we hike we will be going over common scenarios that may arise on trips, spend time talking more about the logistics of being a leader, and discuss next steps to becoming a leader.
