hiking 101


Designed to provide beginner level hikers with approachable one-on-one training, knowledge, and skills to conquer summits in the North East or just a fun day in the woods. Our guides lead beginners through pre-trip planning, objective and goal setting as well as map and mileage planning. Training begins at the trail head with a gear shakedown, equipment fitting, and packing lesson. Once on trail, our guides educate on topics ranging from emergency situations, sanitation, Leave No Trace principles, state regulations, and wildlife while offering plenty of tips and tricks necessary to have safe and successful days in the wilderness.
