Founders Alison Wright and Sarah Castle met during college in Colorado and became fast friends over their mutual love for the outdoors. In 2017, they returned to the state where their friendship began to explore a section of the Colorado Trail and Continental Divide Trail new to both of them.
In 2017, Alison and Sarah headed to backpack the 160-mile Collegiate Peaks Loop of the Colorado Trail, a landmark route pioneered by women’s adventure icon Gudy Gaskill. The Collegiate Peaks Loop connects the Colorado Trail East and Colorado Trail West sections, offering the change to adventure through a variety of landscapes in the shadow of some of Colorado’s most iconic mountains.
Fundraising Goal: $20,000
