2020 has been a busy season for thru-hikes of all lengths. With the more popular long trails closing down, we've certainly seen more travelers on our regular trails in Colorado. So we've tasked a few of our ambassadors to provide some pointers for first-timers and seasoned pros. Check out our first installment on packing recommendations from Heather "Anish" Anderson, the first woman to complete the "Double Triple Crown."
With travel restrictions and safety precautions largely dictating our summer plans, we've been fantasizing about long distance hiking and all the wonderful places to take our socks. We caught up with Lance Ness, Point6 ambassador and thru-hiker to compile some advice for aspiring thru-hikers.
Point6 Ambassador, Naresh Kumar, has seen a lot of the world on two-wheels. He completed the Silk Road Mountain Race, an adventure that took him 12 days to finish with over 28,000 meters of climbing through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan.
Sometimes summer adventures mean the socks come off. We get it. And we think it just makes you appreciate that merino wool feel when you're ready for it. Enjoy this piece on off-season adventures from Point6 ambassador, Grete Eliassen.
