If you're new to hiking...

Let’s get you on the trails… safely! New hikers typically fall into one of two categories: (1) people who are a little scared of hiking and want to know how to be prepared or (2) people who just head out in the woods one day, usually unprepared, and hope for the best. 

KGAdventures doesn’t want you to be either of those people! We want you to be prepared and confident in your hiking abilities so you can start this new adventure safely and have an amazing time.
