Explore with Us

Our goal is to get you outside. Preferably as a well-prepared, confident and competent adventurer. To that end, we offer opportunities in four categories:

Trail guides, books, tutorials

We love when you feel confident enough to strike out on your own, whether it’s for a 2-mile hike on a local trail or thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail (a graduate of our first Intro to Backpacking class actually went on to hike the AT, in 2015). To help you in this regard we offer:

Downloadable PDF tutorials on everything from how to cross a mountain stream to hiking in the dark and more. 

Downloadable PFD guides to local trails, including all the information you need to hike the trail on your own.

Want to become more comfortable with a map and compass? We can help. Become a backpacker? Our program has graduated more than 240 new backpackers. Become more comfortable hiking at night? Get that, too. And more.
