When BackPackin' go GreenPackin'

National Scenic Trails

Leave a comment

Part of what we do here at GreenPackin’ is to inspire people to get out and hike. There are thousands of miles of trails throughout the United States. Some of these trails are very well known across the hiking community (Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail) others are not as well known nationally but are well known regionally (Florida Trail, North Country Trail) and some are known mostly locally (Pinhoti Trail).

During the next several weeks, we’re going to be featuring many of the lesser travelled National Scenic Trails in this blog. We’ll be pulling together information from the various trail organizations as well as from other resources across the web. If you’re interested in contributing information to be included in these blogs, please contact us either as a response to this post or through email to: and we’ll be sure to review and include your information in our upcoming posts. If you’ve hiked any of the eleven the National Scenic Trails and would like to include pictures/videos of these hikes, please include these with your submissions. Full credit will be given to you for your contributions.

The first trail that will be featured is the Ice Age Trail. Briefly, the Ice Age Trail is contained entirely within the state of Wisconsin and runs for around 1,100 miles and highlights many Ice Age landscape features including: Kames, Kettles, Tunnel Channels and Erratics. We’ll provide much more information about the Ice Age Trail beginning in a couple of weeks.

Who is GreenPackin’? GreenPackin’ is a company that believes in providing only healthy and organic foods and other organic, biodegradable and low impact backpacking, hiking and outdoors products. We are reaching out to those who are passionate about backpacking, hiking and the outdoors and desire to leave a minimal impact on the environment. An integral part of the GreenPackin’ shipping process is the development of a network of Inns, Hostels and other lodging types that are frequented by backpackers, hikers and cyclists. We also enlist the help of shuttle providers along the trails. GreenPackin’ will ship your order to these locations. For planning purposes, take a look at our Google maps accessible through this site. Using these established networks allows a hiker greater flexibility with planning mail drops and also ensuring that you will always be able to obtain the foods and products you want and enjoy. These networks are a vast improvement to the typical US Post Office General Delivery option often employed by long distance backpackers and hikers. GreenPackin’ is not limited to shipping to trail locations only, we will be happy to ship to your home or any other location you request. David Jenerick Founder / President of GreenPackin'
