For easy packing we highly recommend duffel bags. A local wrangler will pick up your bags at the trailhead at 1000 a.m. on the day of your arrival. On the day of your departure from the campgrounds the pick up time is 700 a.m.  (Please be advised that there are unavoidable delays sometimes.) All articles that are to be packed on the mule must be tagged or labeled under the party name. To reduce the risk of loss or damage during delivery please make sure all items are firmly packed and secured. Any loose items such as sleeping bags, tent poles, etc. must be packed in a bag.
