Each Fall since 1993, hikers get together to talk trail. The main program includes world-class presentations about hikes around the world and the many aspects of backpacking culture.

At our Gatherings, you’ll meet a regular who’s who of the American backpacking world. People who’ve hiked 10′s of thousands of trail miles around the globe. Nowhere will you get such a concentrated and personal exposure to the depth of hiking experience.
