Who we are…
We are a non-profit, public charity Wilderness School empassioned to teach you how to have safe, fun, and enriching backpacking trips of your own. In our minds, after 47 years of hiking and teaching in the backcountry, there is nothing more therapeutic than a “walk in the woods!” However, there are some things to be aware of before you go….
Our Summertime, “Mountain Basics” courses will get you started toward feeling comfortable on a trail, “Mountain Intermediate” will show you how to walk every day to see and do new things, while “Mountain Advanced” will make you start thinking about hiking something more challenging like the Pacific Crest Trail!
Wintertime is all about the quiet, clean snow! Snow-Hiking and Snow-Camping are nothing to be afraid of and we’re here to dispel those fears! Learn how to stay warm and dry, follow a trail you can’t see, and go up, down, and across almost anything. Why put away your pack and tent when it starts snowing?
