These backpacking meal plans are what I followed for 3-day, 5-day, 6-day, and 8-day hikes on the Appalachian Trail. Each backpacking menu includes recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and snacks. The plans highlight the food drying activities that took place in the kitchen before the trips.
The backpacking meals and foods selected for this 3-day backpacking menu were chosen to demonstrate how many calories you would get from a combination of homemade meals and high-calorie snacks.
Each backpacking recipe lists the calories for a regular serving and a large serving. The total calories per day provided by this backpacking meal plan are approximately 3,000 to 4,000 depending on the serving-sizes selected.

The photos below show the dehydrated meals that I prepared for an 8-day, 73-mile Appalachian Trail hike from Shenandoah National Park to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. I dried the food for the meals in a 9-trayExcalibur dehydratorin four loads.
I started off the feasting with Chili for lunch. All lunches were prepared in the mornings by adding boiled water to the dried meals in a Thermos Food Jar.
The photo also shows assorted dried fruits – one serving for each day. On the trail, I rehydrated one cup of dried fruit in the thermos after lunch with two cups of cold water. I waited until late in the afternoon to enjoy the fruit cocktails.
