Are you curious about long-distance backpacking but don’t know where to start? Are you preparing for your first thru-hike and looking for some advice from hiking experts? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
We realize that if we had someone to talk to when we first started – like a qualified Hiking Coach – it would have saved us lots of time, energy, and money.
Hiking can be intimidating, and long-distance backpacking over multiple days, weeks, or months can be even more challenging.
With over a decade of combined experience and thousands of hiked miles under our belts, we want to share our learned experience and save you the headaches that stem from ill-informed decisions.
While we are currently working on an interactive online course that will be deployed in the coming months, due to rising demand we have decided to offer one-on-one coaching services for novices and aspiring hikers alike.
On the call we will be open to any and all questions relating to thru-hiking or long distance backpacking. Nothing is off the table; no question is too small or large.
Why Do You Need A Hiking Coach?
Learn from our mistakes, and ask your Hiking Coach the tough questions that Google can’t answer.
Topics may include, but not be limited to:
- Training Regiment
- Gear Selection
- Base Weight
- Resupply Planning
- Navigation & Maps
- Safely Crossing Waterways
- Dealing With Snow
- Dehydrating Food
- Meal Planning & Our Favorite Recipes
In addition to all of this information, we will also offer our support and encouragement. Sometimes a little bit of information and an encouraging voice is that little push you’ll need to get moving. Like we said, you’ve come to the right place.
The scheduled call can be done over Skype or the old fashioned way, with a phone.
After your purchase, a member of the Wild West Trail team will contact you within 24 hours to schedule your thru-hiker coaching session.
On the fence? We are confident that you will find value in what we have to offer, and so there is no risk associated with making this purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied with your coaching session, we will gladly give you a full refund.
