At Pathloom, we're extremely proud of the exclusive content we bring to our community each and every week.

While we're certainly proud of our written content here, (and our videos on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok!), we're equally proud of the INCREDIBLE work our photographers put in to give you amazing views of some of the most beautiful areas of the country.

Taken From: Trip Report: Marufo Vega Trail, Big Bend National Park, Texas

(published 11/1/2021)


"With the right preparation, you’ll have an incredible hike. This is one of the most beautiful and remote locations I’ve ever experienced (fun fact: Big Bend is one of the furthest spots you can be in the U.S. from the nearest traffic light!) This hike also features my favorite backcountry campsite of all time (and I’ve seen quite a few)!"

Taken From: Avoiding the Crowds in Moab: Alternatives to Utah’s Overcrowded National Parks

(published 11/15/2021)


"Moab, a city in Eastern Utah, is the home of Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. This region of the state is known as a red-rock wonderland. The iconic rock formations attract millions of visitors each year that cause serious traffic jams, so much so that Park officials are pushing for reservation systems to be implemented. Spending the day mountain biking, rock climbing, or visiting Dead Horse Point State Park (located right between the two famous National Parks) might be the perfect alternative to waiting in long lines and fighting crowds at popular scenic pull-offs. Although rock climbing these magnificent red-rock walls or mountain biking on Utah's famed terrain is not for the faint of heart, Moab is known as a mecca for both."

Taken From: Cold Weather / Winter Trail Running Training

(published 11/22/2021)


"It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with training in Santa Fe - it is truly a hiker’s and trail runner’s paradise. The area offers National Forests, Wilderness Areas, and other local parks and trail networks. While starting slow, I mostly frequented the La Tierra Trails, which were relatively flat and offered effectively unlimited customization for running routes. I had a blast getting an initial baseline level of fitness here on these trails."

(published 11/29/21)


"Our friends at Snowcap Video Solutions certainly fall in the latter category, and are getting extremely excited as the first few snowfalls begin to grace their New England home. We worked with them to create a video highlighting some amazing winter activities while also showing off just how beautiful and majestically serene winter landscapes can get. Check out videos like this, trip reports, camping and road tripping playlists, and so much more on our YouTube channel!"
