Working well with our hiker’s is the most important aspect of a what we do and we strive to provide you with the best experiences to connect with the outdoor community.

I recently went on a long-distant backpacking trip.  HBF Outdoors participated in a portion of the hike with me, but even after they left the trail, they continued their support. HBF Outdoors provided me with weather updates, regularly checked on my status, and coordinated shuttle service and overnight accommodations when I came off the trail for one night.  Without their support, this trip would have been much more difficult. Because of their constant support, I never felt like I was alone – even when I was walking by myself on the mountain.
