We donate 100% of our Profits

Off Trail On Track is about creating fulfillment for all.

Helping humans get into the wilderness and reconnect with themselves, with one another, and with nature gives us so much fulfillment. We have been donating 100% of our profits to social and environmental causes since we started 6 years ago.

We believe that giving back is an integral part of the transformative journey of minimalism, that it has the potential to educate and inspire more people, and that it helps protect the environment for future enjoyment. here

We are starting a movement that we hope will help us all reflect deeply about what really brings us fulfillment and how we might create space for one another, and for nature. We are cooking up something behind the scenes and we can’t wait to tell you more! Stay in the loop here!

Kind Thoughts

“Duncan, you really have a gift for guiding, helping, and teaching others, and I’ll be forever grateful for how you supported me (physically and verbally) to make it up the slab yesterday.”

“Duncan is our resident expert on fast-and-light hiking! He has been such an incredible asset to us!"

“...this minimalist hiking thing you got me into... got me to think differently ... you know, about the ‘real’ life where I got a mortgage, 2 kids, and bills...”
