I was glad to finally see how much a 23 lb pack feels when hiking. It wasn't bad at all. The guides are very knowledgeable and enjoy sharing their experiences with others. Their personal touch with everything from breakfast to best practices was awesome! – Jill B.
We have an excellent safety record at Outdoor Adventure Connection.
There is not ONE THING I WOULD CHANGE!!!!! The entire trip exceeded every expectation I had. And Andy, you could not have been a more wonderful, helpful, and genuinely kind person!!!! And I mean that 500%. It was especially awesome getting to know you better!! I now consider you more than my "backpacking guide"... I think of you now, truly, as my friend. – Gina B.
I enjoyed everything I learned over the weekend. – Denise K.
What an amazing experience! Thank you for sharing it with me and others. – Noelle A.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip! The workshops were extremely helpful when considering planning a trip on my own. I loved having only women on the trip. Nothing against men but a trip with only women has a completely different energy and it was wonderful. – Terry C.
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.

I learned so much on this trip, like how to fit my backpack, how to set up my tent, how to start a fire, how to cross a river and how to be a responsible backpacker. I was surprised that we got the chance to try so many varieties of backpacking food. – Junlan L.
The guides did a great job. You both did tons of work and were never flustered and always smiling. And you took care of all of us. I really appreciate that. – Tim S.

The hands-on workshops with water filters and fire building were especially helpful to me. There was much value in having a guide with Yvonne's vast experience to talk to women about backpacking safety and other issues from a female perspective. – Laurie J.
