leave no trace

No matter what we do, be it a day trip or multi-day expedition through the forest, we always practice Leave No Trace. There are seven principles we abide by at all times while being outdoors:

  • Plan Ahead and Prepare
  • Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
  • Dispose of Waste Properly
  • Leave What You Find
  • Minimize Campfire Impacts
  • Respect Wildlife
  • Be Considerate of Other Visitors

Details on Leave No Trace and the Seven Principles

what if there's poor weather?

If the forecast looks simply awful and punishing, we'll reschedule your trip. If it's manageable and likely to improve then it's off we go! Weather is always unpredictable and only adds to the excitement of being outdoors.


what to bring for backpacking/overnighters?

Bring a small bag with enough clothes for the duration of your trip, plus some extras to feel good and clean on the ride back. Adventures Accessed will hold onto the bags while you're out having F-U-N.

  • Food (freeze dried meals and snacks are available for purchase, call in advance for availability)
  • Hygiene gear
  • Flashlight
  • AAA batteries (for issued headlamp)
  • Pocket knife
  • Hat
  • Water resistant coat
  • Sunscreen and lip balm
  • Small towel
  • Toilet paper
  • Trash bag
  • Lighter

What shoes are best for hiking?

If you've got hiking boots, well that's a no-brainer. Shoes or boots that provide ankle support will be your best bet on uneven or slippery terrain, and often those two are on the same patch of trail. Old gym shoes work too because they're already broken in, have soft rubber for grip and you may not care too much if they get filthy. But make sure they're not so old that they're ridden with holes and have no tread left.  You'll want traction and moisture repellant on the trail. Finally, the lesser known hiking shoes or trail runners will work as well. In fact, you may already have a pair of hiking shoes or trail runners which have a more accommodating traction design and more durability. Trail runners are made by a number of mainstream brands and even some hiking shoes are found at your favorite shoe store. Ask Al Bundy for assistance.  


 

 


In case of emergency?

Your safety is top priority. Adventures Accessed will ensure that should anything happen on your trip, you'll be able to get the help you need. You'll have phone numbers for the park rangers, local authorities, and the right tools and equipment to get yourselves to public space should you need. Always keep a positive attitude.


are dates and times on the calendar firm?

For Backpacking and Over-Nighters

Nope! While we've planned to take the trips listed on those specific dates and times on the calendar, we understand your schedule may not fit with ours. If you want to get outside but the dates don't work, call us up and we'll make it happen. Our goal is to connect you with nature.

For Day-trips

Most of our day-trips are made with partnerships with other businesses that rely on us showing up when we say. There is more flexibility during the week, especially in the ol' dog days of summa so please give us a call if you'd like to get out there at a time that's not listed.


what clothes are best?

Wool, polyester and nylon are the best fabrics for breathable, quick drying, warm clothes in the outdoors. You want the ability to keep warm, keep dry and dry off. Remember to dress in layers!
