For us, it's all about you! So who are you? You would be surprised at all the places you come from and what you look like! Our clients come from all over the United States and Europe. We also have clients from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Israel, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Australia.
Many of the trips we plan are for families, and those families come in all shapes and sizes -- the typical Mom, Dad and 2 kids, new parents with infant children who refuse to let parenthood slow them down, empty-nesters traveling WITHOUT children, multi-generation groups celebrating birthdays or anniversaries, and families taking one last big road trip together with older children. Whatever your situation, if you're interested in a National Park road trip, then we can get you headed in the right direction!
The most popular destinations among our clients are typically Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Mt. Rushmore and Yosemite National Parks. After experiencing one or more of these national treasures, many of our clients develop a taste for getting off the beaten path to see the lesser-known gems of the West. That's when we steer you towards places like Glacier National Park, Banff and Jaspar National Parks in Canada, Rocky Mountain National Park, Arches National Park, and dozens of others. Be careful -- this can easily become a lifelong pursuit. (We should know.)
The average trip lasts 7-10 nights, although we occasionally plan trips lasting a month or two. Much depends on schedules back home, including school, sports and other extracurricular activities, as well as family budgets.
Some of our clients have previous experience with outdoor adventures, yet they love using Tracks & Trails because of the simplicity of planning a trip with us. Others have little or no experience in the outdoors. And that's fine with us, too. We will take the time to learn who you are before proposing a trip for you. Much depends on the ages of the children or the ages/mobility of the grandparents that come along for the ride. That's why our itineraries will have short and long hikes to choose from. And, if you're traveling by RV, you have most of the comforts of home - a soft bed, bathroom, refrigerator, oven, air conditioner and maybe a TV - but the Great Outdoors is right outside your door.
