What’s Off Trail On Track?

A community of outdoor-loving people who use minimalist backpacking to empower voices, build networks, and support conservation.

Over the past 6 years, hundreds of our students have taken courses to enhance their outdoor experience and practice a new mindset of simplicity.


Why are we doing this?

Fulfillment, not profit.

To help humans reconnect with themselves, one another, and nature.

To direct attention and resources toward wilderness conservation and education.

To inspire us to apply a minimalist mindset to our lives so to create abundance for all.
