With the help of an all-star guide team, I offer adventurous learning-intensive courses and trips in California, Alaska, West Virginia, southern Utah, and the Colorado Rockies. We specialize in lightweight backpacking, long-distance thru-hiking, and off-trail high routes.

For Beginners

New to backpacking, getting back into it after a long hiatus, or looking to accelerate up the learning curve? There is a "right" way to backpack: have the appropriate gear, supplies, and skills for your trip objective and the conditions.
