Laura Petersen founded Hiking For Good in the summer of 2018 when at the age of 45 she decided to organize her first overnight backpacking trip.
Rather than go alone, she sought the help of a friend and experienced backpacker. Hiking For Good was launched with a three-part Backpacking Basics Series. A small group courageously signed up and ventured to a beautiful place together called Crooked Lakes in the heart of the Sierra Nevada for swimming, stargazing and trailblazing.
Since then, Hiking For Good has teamed up with Outlandish Experiences to offer a full spectrum of day hikes and backpacking trips all year long for people of diverse abilities and interests who want to explore and connect with themselves, nature, and other humans.
