We have found all the resources you need to plan and execute the ultimate hike or backpacking trip in the American Redoubt!

The resources below come from many different sources both public and private such as the local and state governments, USFS, Conservancy’s, Foundations, Wilderness groups as well as magazines and blogs. All together you should have more than enough information to get started for the coming summer! This does not include ‘Camping’ or RV’ing’ as we have covered that in another Resource page.

We have grouped them by National and State resources and they are all located on this one page, so be sure to scroll all they way through to learn more. Enjoy!
