INSPIRATION THROUGH OUTDOOR EXPLORATION

InspireOut offers a variety of backpacking courses throughout the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. Our passion is exploration and we love to teach curious students how to enjoy in the wild. While hiking with all you need strapped to your back, enjoy a quick dip in a cool, blue lake, a climb to the top of a high mountain peak, and a campfire under our glistening blanket of stars. We are here to help encourage confidence for youth and adults to consistently find these awe-inspiring moments. We provide basic training in backpacking for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced programs to fine tune skills.
