Mindi Bennett

I am the author of "Kids Out Wild: A Tale of Love and Suffering on Four of America's National Scenic Trails" and "Gear Up with Kids Out Wild: A Gear Guide for Backpacking Families." My family has hiked the PCT (2019), PNT (2020), the CDT (2021) and the AT (2022) together. We hope to inspire more families to do long-distance trails, create a new level of family unity, deepen our love of the outdoors, meet life-long friends on the trail, and eat less top ramen.
