  • Do I have to sleep in a tent?
    No, Trail Dog & Company specializes in "slackpacking" or continuous day hiking trips. You'll enjoy the beauty of nature during the day, and return to a nicely appointed vacation rental at night for all the creature comforts.
  • How do I learn more information on upcoming trips?
    Visit us on Instagram @traildogandcompanyllc or email us at: If you don't see what you're looking for, we're happy to plan a custom trip for you!
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    There is a $50 down payment for all team building hikes. If you don't hike within 1 month of signing up for a date, you forfeit the down payment. Group discounts are only provided to groups of 8 or more hikers. A private group hike is a minimum of $200. There is a $200 down payment for all slackpacking trips. If you cancel your trip within 90 days of your departure date, you forfeit the $200 down payment. We highly recommend travel insurance when signing up for a slackpacking trip. Some recommended travel insurance companies are: World Nomads or Travelex. Any participant cancellations for day-hikes within 72 hours of your scheduled hike will receive 50% refund.
  • 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.
