RightOnTrekwas founded by a group of friends and backpacking buddies from Silicon Valley. In 2017, they completed the 211-mile John Muir Trail in the High Sierra. During that epic adventure, they developed a shared dream: to open up similar adventures to millions of people who don’t have the knowledge, experience, or equipment for a multi-day backpacking vacation.
Within the group, everyone had all the capital and skills to turn that dream into reality. Six months later, in October 2018, the first version ofRightOnTrek.comwent live. Since then, thousands of people have discovered their site and used the tools to plan their backpacking trips.
