The Hiker's Guide to Great Outdoors Month - Backpacker

Celebrate Great Outdoors Month

We hikers are a solitary tribe. We hit the trail with a partner or small group, heading as far from civilization as we can get. But this month, it's time to come together.

June is Great Outdoors Month: Thirty days of celebrations of everything outdoor, from trail gatherings to free fishing days. And we're here to help you celebrate it. Check back throughout the month for the hiking gear, trips, skills, and news you need to make the most of the summer.
