About the event

Quit using Alltrails (seriously). We'll teach you how to plan a trip, starting from the very beginning of where to find trails all the way to planning your route and tracking conditions. We'll share our favorite resources to help you plan successful, safe, and fun trips. Then you'll plan a trip for yourself!

This course is a part of our backpacking and bikepacking series! We at Gearhouse want to get as many different kinds of people outside, so we’re running a series to teach you absolutely everything you’d need to know to get out into the backcountry. We'll talk how to pack a bike, gear, trail selection, weight (you don’t need to be ultralight to have a lighter pack!), food, safety: we will cover it all. At the end of this series, you’ll be confident in your skills to get you and your friends out on the trail, and we'll plan a trip to put your knowledge to the test.
