Outstanding Podcast

I’m an avid hiker/backpacker and this is exactly the podcast I have been searching for. Very engaging and informative, I can’t recommend this show enough.

South Warner Wilderness

Love the show! I was pleasantly surprised to hear the mini on the Warner Mountains. I hiked to Patterson via the Pine Creek trail a few years ago. What a beautiful and secluded wilderness.

I really enjoy the show!

There are some really great guests and episodes in this podcast. I like the new feature of “mini” trips and am looking forward to more of those. My favorite episodes have been for the places I’ve never even thought of going, like the Superior Hiking Trail, the Uinta Highline Trail, and the Via Transilvanica.
