Trailblazer’s Weekend

Have you wanted to try a backpacking trip but wasn’t sure if you could?

Our Trailblazer’s trips are designed to introduce you to backpacking by customizing your adventure to fit your needs.

Following our Trailblazer’s Workshop agenda you’ll learn everything needed to be prepared as well as enjoy your trip. Trailblazer trips are typically 2 to 3 days and average 5 to 8 miles of hiking a day. However, we can customize your trip and modify the mileage and hours to fit your needs.

We also offer Fully Supported trips in which we handle – meal prep and tent/sleep system set-up.

Two weeks prior to the trip we’ll meet to cover gear, logistics, and any questions. This is not mandatory but recommended and a great way to meet the HBF Outdoors, LLC. team.
