Andy is a great leader; he helped us with our weaknesses and praised our strengths. He provided a nice balance of group hiking and also let us hike at our own pace. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has interest in hiking any type trail for an extended period of time. Experienced hikers would definitely benefit as well. If you have every wanted to "get out there" this is the trip to take. Charley S.

The guides are amazing! I take away from this adventure feeling empowered and self reliant. Watch out World!!Kimberly P.

I really liked the relaxed, low key atmosphere. I think that having leaders who are knowledgeable without being overbearing really helped everyone relax and enjoy the experience without feeling intimidated.Amy G.

I wouldn't change a thing! This was an absolutely wonderful experience! Every detail was planned and well thought out by our guide. I wouldn't have any hestitation in recommending this trip to a someone who has never backpacked, a beginning backpacker or someone who want to brush up on their skills. I am really looking forward to attending OAC trips in the future. Thanks so much for an excellent experience!Amanda R.

Still trying to absorb the absolutely wonderful experiences I had this past weekend. I highly recommend Outdoor Adventure Connection if you want to learn more about all things hiking. This is my second trip with them, and it was even more awesome than the first one.Shelly M.

I especially enjoyed the creek crossing! I was also very glad to learn about additional techniques for hanging bear bags and all sorts of general safety tips. I can't think of anything I would change - even glad I now know how to handle backpacking in the rain.Jessica C.
