Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Hiking Without Your Leaders

The US Department of Agriculture, which administers the US Forest Service, places restrictions on guided hiking within the National Forests. On Day 4 of this trip, we hike in Boynton Canyon where guided hiking is prohibited. Since your leaders will be unable to hike with you in this location, they will provide a pre-walk briefing, map and directions so you can explore the canyon on your own. Thank you for helping us cooperate with the USDA's regulations.
