The Dyer's Bay Two Day Backpacking Trip

Trip Information

This hike will start off slow and easy on the first day with only 9kms on paved and dirt roads. 

At camp we will have all the luxuries, but we will need a good rest for the 8 hour, 23km day 2 along the coast of Dyer's Bay. It promises some challenging terrain and beautiful views!

We will be spending one night at a paid camp site with amenities (showers, bathrooms, water) and will be sleeping in tents.
