Blue Mountains Trail

When we see ourselves as part of nature, we act differently.

Thru-hiking changed how I see and move through the world.
I want everyone to discover the transformative power of a good long walk.

Hike- Explore - Connect

I guide long-distance trail organizations, hikers, and the outdoor industry to improve the hiking experience and inspire action on
behalf of the environment

Renee Patrick Headshot


I have been writing, speaking, and working with outdoor industry partners over several decades to educate, inspire, activate, and motivate hikers and the general public to spend more time on trails.


Trail orgs: I can design, build, write, or publish the materials you need to make your trail a world-class experience.

Hikers: I can give you the advice or tips you need to make your next backpacking trip fun and fulfilling.


I am a triple-crown thru-hiker with over 20 years of experience planning, hiking, and improving long-distance trails. I am an environmentalist and passionate outdoor enthusiast who believes that long-distance hiking can deepen our relationship with the landscapes and environmental issues that desperately need more advocates. 

When we see ourselves as part of nature, we act differently.

By following my curiosity for over 25 years, my interests and passions now culminate in this work to improve the long-distance hiking experience through resource development, community outreach, and hiker engagement, all through the lens of thousands of miles backpacked on trails around the world.
