SERVICES FOR TRAIL ORGANIZATIONS

Do your trail resources adequately prepare hikers for the realities of planning and hiking your trail?

 

Work with me to enhance the information available, communicate effectively with your hikers, and connect them to the unique aspects of the local communities or environments that make your trail an amazing adventure.

I will improve the hiking experience on your trail.

Quick Review

QUICK RESOURCE REVIEW

With a short turn-around time of 2-4 weeks, I will:

  • Audit existing trail resources to learn about and plan a trip on your trail.

    • Do your resources adequately prepare the hiker and create realistic expectations about the experience?

    • Is there enough information about permits, camping options, resupply, and water for planning purposes?

    • Is your vision and purpose for the trail adequately explained? 

    • Can hikers read accounts of others who have hiked on your trail? Are there ways to obtain unbiased information about the hike?

    • Are there ways to engage the hiker after their hike?

  • Provide an assessment report with recommended next steps to edit, update, build, create, or design new or existing resources.

The Quick Resource Review can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your organization or trail.
