Get Outside. Start Exploring.
Join us on a guided hike in the Texas Hill Country. We'll explore hidden gems in the metropolitan Austin area and spectacular trails within an hour of the city. Your guides will introduce you to the local flora and fauna, and also share the geological history of the area. Hikes vary in length, from 3 miles to 11 miles, and the difficulty rating is listed for each hike. If you have questions about the difficulty level of a hike, please email us! Prices vary based on income level, location, and duration.
Price range: $5 to $45
Have you joined us for a guided hike and wanted more? Now, you got it! Join us for a weekend away from the city. We will provide itinerary, packing lists, snacks and meals, filtered water, and campsite activities. We'll teach you how to set up a safe, comfortable campsite and enjoy an evening under the stars!
You just have to show up and have fun! Rental equipment is available if you do not have any of your own.
We're happy to accommodate dietary restrictions in meals - we're gluten-sensitive ourselves and experienced in food safety protocols. You can indicate your diet needs when you sign up.

Intro to Backpacking
Join us for one to two nights on a backcountry adventure and learn the skills you need to go backpacking on your own! Once you experience the peace and independence of backcountry camping, you'll be hooked! We will be doing a little hiking with a lot of hands-on learning. We'll teach you how to load your backpack, how to cook and prepare food, how to clean up, and how to set up a secure campsite.
Most of our hikes in to the campsites will be 2-3 miles with full packs. We'll plan just-for-fun activities as well as educational experiences, and delicious, nutritious meals. Once again, let us know if you have dietary restrictions ahead of time. Rental equipment will be available on these trips, as well.
Prices vary based on income level, location, and length. Price range: $45 to $175.
