The Inaugural Issue of Trails Magazine is 70-pages of beautiful photography, illustrated trail maps, and the best adventure stories found anywhere, printed on 80-pound paper and with fewer ads than any magazine you'll find on grocery store shelves. Stories in Issue One include:

  • Reporting about the cliché of using long hikes as a cure for trauma or replacement for therapy, and why that doesn’t always work like it does in the movies. 
  • A profile of the pioneers of the sport of “skatepacking,” which involves long distance self-supported thru-skates. 
  • Photos from one backpacker’s trip into Lake Clark National Park in Alaska. 
  • The Yelp-style review of a picturesque outhouse in the Pacific Northwest. 
  • Thoroughly-tested gear reviews of a down jacket with a removable back panel, and women’s hiking pants designed to make peeing easier and more equitable. 
  • One writer’s opinion on why “cairn kickers” and the debate around rock stacking has gone too far. 
  • An illustrated map of Maine’s Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. 
  • A recipe for backcountry chilaquiles. 
  • A trip report from a hiker who decided the Colorado Trail wasn’t rugged enough, so she designed her own route across the Centennial State. 
  • Photos from a citizen science backpacking trip to Bears Ears in search of forgotten cliff dwellings. 

You won't find any of these stories online. The only way to read them is to pick up a copy of Issue One while supplies last.

A note for international readers: Back issues are shipped from our headquarters in Colorado, so international shipping costs apply if we send them out of the US. Readers in Canada should consider a subscription to dramatically cut down on shipping costs—Those copies ship directly from the printer in Winnipeg and don't need to cross the border.
