Your Day

Energized by the fresh air, you can enjoy time getting to know your trailmates along the way. Continue your convesations after your hike while sipping some cold brews at a nearby local brewery. Learn about the beer making process with a tour and enjoy an afternoon of board games while you relax with your new friends.

Weather

Weather conditions can be quite different from the city in the mountainous regions we visit. Temperatures can be quite cooler as we head north or to higher elevations. Keep your eyes out for an email from our team a few days in advance of your trip. That email will provide updated weather conditions and will alert you to anything additional you should put in your pack to prepare. We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little rain or wind ruin a chance for an adventure. You can contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about preparing for trail conditions.
