  • What if I'm a beginner?
    First of all, welcome! We have a number of beginner trips to help ease you into the great outdoors. We'll teach you the basics so you're a safe and confident hiker.
  • Will we still hike if it's raining?
    Yes, absolutely! As long as weather conditions are safe, we still hike. That is part of the whole hiking experience. The weather won't always be 70 degrees and sunny, so we plan ahead, and pack the proper gear and clothing for the weather conditions that day. However, weather that includes lightening, flooding, tornadoes, etc. is simply not safe. In those situations, we reschedule the hike if you're signed up for a day hike. If you're on a slackpacking trip, we simply arrange a different (and safe) activity for that particular day. Safety is our number one goal at Trail Dog & Company. We assess the weather conditions and always act in the best interest of safety.
