Did you just get back from an amazing weekend of camping? Are you fresh off an epic backpacking trip deep in the wilderness? Did you find a perfect dispersed campsite that you want to share with your fellow campers? Climbed along a rocky oceanic coastline? Kayaked down a river from source to delta? Nailed down the perfect campfire recipe? Have a close encounter with a wildfire in the forest? We want to hear from you!


Here at Pathloom, we’re all about getting more people outdoors, more often. While we’re working to build the perfect outdoor trip planning app (sign up for Beta access here!), we’re also working to build the most comprehensive community of outdoor enthusiasts throughout the US and beyond - and we can’t do it without you!


If you’ve got an idea for a story, we want to hear about it! If it’s something that we feel will help to enrich our community in some way, shape or form - or if it’s just a seriously cool story - we’d love to feature your writing here on the Pathloom Blog! We're an inclusive community looking for submissions from all levels of experience alike - life-changing outdoor adventures come in all shapes and sizes! Reading about a day trip to a great mountain biking area can be just as entertaining and informative as a story about a month-long trek up the Appalachian Trail!
