Find your comfort zone.

Hiking is for everyone, regardless of ability, background, or appearance. We’ll help you find  friends who are at your speed.


Down to earth guidance.

Whether you’re setting out on a 50-mile trek or planning an afternoon stroll, it’s nice to know what to expect—but not in a snooty TMI kind of way.


How this whole thing started.

This is Dayna Del Mar. She’s a pretty happy person, but 2016 was a low point for her. She had just gotten out of a long-term relationship—and she lost most of her friends in the breakup. Dayna knew she wanted to get outside, so she set an ambitious goal (that’s kinda her thing): to conquer an 11-day trek in the Himalayas along the Annapurna Sanctuary in Nepal. To prepare, she signed on for the #52hikechallenge and started exploring the trails outside of Portland, Oregon. But she was lonely, and she realized she didn’t really know what she was doing. After several setbacks and #trailfails, Dayna had a revelation: What if there was a platform that could give her the guidance she needed, when she needed it, and help her make new friends along the way? Frankly, she was surprised such a thing didn’t exist already! That’s when PackDen was born.
