On these pages you will find information for planning a safe wilderness trip. We have provided both HTML and PDF versions of all material.

The key to having a safe and enjoyable wilderness experience is planning. Take the time to plan your route (using maps), and to make sure that you have all of the equipment you may need. Most importantly, don't forget to tell a responsible adult where you are going and when they should expect you back.

Courtesy of SARVAC we have provided several trip documents to help you plan your wilderness trip. The documents below will help so that you don't miss anything. Volunteer ground search and rescue teams train hard and will do all they can to find you and bring you to safety, but remember that returning safely is ultimately your responsibility!

NOTE: Outdoor activities are assume-risk sports. This Trip Plan information is intended as a guide and cannot be expected to replace approved and appropriate courses in outdoor survival, navigation, first aid, CPR, or emergency procedures. Planning, experience and education are essential for all safe, successful, wilderness trips.
