This was one of the best backpacking experiences I have ever had!Narayan R.

The trip was very informative and answered many questions that I had about backpacking. The park was lovely and had great terrain. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I would do this trip again and recommend it to others who were interested in backpacking. Thank you!Robbin C.

Andy and Tama were great. They made everyone feel welcome and important. Everyone got something beneficial from the experience. The workshops were done very well.Mike H.

I'm now an experienced backpacker thanks to Outdoor Adventure Connection. Their workshops, presentations, backpack trips, and hikes have turned an interest in the outdoors into a passion. Andy is a natural at educating and promoting. He knows how to teach; he knows how to encourage; he knows when to challenge; he has a knack for connecting with people. He's creative, energetic, and a master at organization.Karen C.

You really raised the bar for future trips! The scenery was spectacular. It was good to brush up on my water-crossing skills, too. This may become one of my favorite hikes ever.Glenn R.
