What our students are saying...

"I’ve been hiking for a few years now (on simple trails), and thought I knew so much already and was just hoping to pick up a few little things in the class. However, I have learned a TON that I’m already putting to use - planning hikes in new places, figuring out what gear and clothes we need and how to store everything, what to bring on every hike etc! The class is easy to follow and and such an amazing value too!"

Jenny B.

"I took Rebecca's course and it was life changing! Her course helped me with tweaks and tricks in my current outdoor adventures."

Mickey S.

“Rebecca taught me to LOVE the outdoors.  Rebecca gave me the courage to step out of my comfort zone and take my toddler on hikes."
