About

We are outdoor fanatics here at TrailDirt.com. We have been hiking and 4×4 guides at Grand Canyon, Glen Canyon, and Grand Staircase-Escalante. We’ve backpacked and hiked through a lot of places since 1995–including Arizona, California, Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Utah. We’ll share our adventures, the latest news stories in the outdoors, and cool videos here.
