Your Accommodations:

We will be basing our Big Horn Mountain Adventure out of Porcupine Campgrounds in the Big Horn National Forest. Although campground registration costs will be covered for this Adventure, you will need to provide your own tent. As the time for the Adventure draws nearer, we will communicate with registrants to ensure that everyone has adequate tent lodging.

Also… please note that the Porcupine Campground is primitive. While potable water and vault toilets are available at the camp, there are no running water or shower facilities. There is a nearby creek that can be used for washing up.

Important Additional Info:

  • The average high in the Big Horn Mountains during July is 70 degrees Fahrenheit (great for hiking), with an average low of 40 degrees Fahrenheit (great for campfires). July in the Big Horn’s will bring the possibility of an occassional rain shower. Please utilize this information to pack weather-appropriate clothing and bedding. You will need WARM clothes and bedding for the evenings!
  • We will be eating our supper together on Sunday evening at Bear Lodge in Burgess Junction. The cost of this meal is NOT covered in the registration costs. Estimated cost of this meal is $20 – $25.

Physical Recommendations:

This is VERY important. The Big Horn Mountain Adventure features two days of strenuous hiking. We will spend the majority of our time above 9000ft. Our first day’s Adventure features 1500ft of elevation gain (to a final elevation of 9500ft). While Man Up Adventures always pledges to maintain a safe trailside environment, we also acknowledge that keeping a steady hiking pace is most advantageous for the group as a whole. Because of this we ask that all participants undergo the necessary training prior to the Adventure.

While our goal is not to exclude men from participating in our Adventures, for the sake of group dynamics and the respect of your fellow Adventurers, we strongly encourage each participant to spend at least 10 consecutive minutes walking on an inclined treadmill at a brisk pace prior to making the decision to register. This sort of exercise should serve as a strong litmus test as to whether you are ready for the hikes that are featured on our Adventures.

Although we are not licensed medical professionals, we reserve the right to ask you not to participate if we feel that your health is at risk.
