Educational Hikes and Workshops

Explore some of the most pressing issues facing the A-B Wilderness


We invite you to join us this summer on a series of interpretive hikes, often led by local experts and Atlas contributors, throughout the A-B. Hear from local geologists, botanists, mining experts, and wilderness activists, as well as explore a topic while hiking a relevant trail. Hikes are FREE, but you do need to sign up to reserve a spot. Check out the various hikes offered below!
