Students enrolled in Sierra Club’s Wilderness Travel Course were well-equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the backcountry safely and responsibly, even in the midst of record winter and snow conditions.
The comeback year!
After an interrupted 2020 and a skipped 2021, our beloved WTC program returned in 2022 welcoming an excited class of outdoor enthusiasts.
Since 1989, the Angeles Chapter’s Wilderness Travel Course (WTC) has helped thousands of hikers build outdoor skills and gain new friendships and personal growth on inspiring adventures. With a core curriculum that includes navigation, rock scrambling, snow travel, mountain safety, and more, the 10-week course lays a foundation for responsible and safer traveling in local and distant wilderness areas in places beyond roads and trails.
