Our Trailbound course will transform individuals from day hikers to sectional and thru hikers.

A backpacking journey is one of the most rewarding, exhilarating, and memorable ways you can spend your life. Thru-hiking enables you to immerse yourself deeply in the natural world and view some of the most beautiful, wild landscapes. Thru-hiking will also give you the opportunity to form friendships with people of all ages, from all walks of life, and from around the world.

We equip you with the skills needed to overcome the obstacles of everyday trail life, and to survive the elements should something go wrong.  This is an adventurous five (5) Course where we will backpack into remote locations, setup camp, and train in backcountry wilderness survival.  You don’t want to miss this event.  Space is limited.
