The Path Less Beaten is about adventures in the outdoors. On this site you’ll find stories about hiking, backpacking, camping, road tripping, cycling, cave exploring, snowshoeing, and more. In the posts there are many tips on where to go and how to get there. We’ll also review the gear we’ve used along the way.
Using Carson City, NV as our base camp, we’re centrally located for adventures around the west. Most of our outings take place in northern Nevada and California’s eastern Sierras, while some trips take us along the Pacific Coast, the Pacific Northwest, and even the canyon lands of southern Utah.
While the scenery in our adventures may be extreme, we certainly are not. We’re novice adventurers, learning as we go. Many of the trips here are family friendly, or can be tackled by those with less experience. Hopefully you will find the information and inspiration on this site you need for your next adventure.
