Adventure Mentoring

Meet Sage

Sage & Adam on the Japhy Ryder Route in Mendocino National Forest

Have you been thinking of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, sections of the Bigfoot Trail, or a bikebacking trip somewhere in the west, but aren’t quite sure how to get out the door? Do you have a dream hike or route you have always wanted to try, but wish you could have some help getting ready? Sage can help you prepare for your adventure. She can guide you through creating your resupply plan, aid in selecting equipment you will need for your specific trail, and be there to help you through the growing pains of becoming a backpacker, a thru-hiker, or long distance adventurer.

Contact Sage to start your adventure mentorship.

Route Consulting

Do you have a new route you would like to see walked into reality? Sage is very familiar with the western US and would be excited to hear about any route ideas and plans you or your organization might have. In the summer of 2011 Sage created her own 1,200 mile route across California and fell in love with the route creation process, from making maps to walking into uncharted terrain. In 2013 she hiked the Oregon Desert Trail, a route conceived by Oregon Natural Desert Association that highlights potential wilderness in eastern Oregon. Sage worked with ONDA to generate media attention for the route, and also provided valuable feedback to fine tune the ODT for other travelers. Sage can help collect data on everything from water sources and trail junctions to wildlife observations and town guide material. Her adventures can be made accessible those who can’t get out into the field for months on end, inspiring curiosity and engagment. Sage can send in regular blog content from the field, and can take footage & photos from the trail for promotion projects. She is easy to work with, and enthusiastic about most adventure ideas, float yours by her today!
