Adventure Talks: Tutka Backdoor Trail

Apr 17, 2019

KDLL Adventure Talks offers a virtual hike of the Kenai Peninsula’s newest long-distance backpacking route, the Tutka Backdoor Trail, with trail coordinator Bretwood “Hig” Higman, of Ground Truth Trekking in Seldovia, and Eric Clarke, with Kachemak Bay State Park. In the on-air interview, host Jenny Neyman talks with Hig and Eric about how and why the trail came to be. They also discuss sustainable trail building and the little things hikers can do to make a big difference in maintaining their favorite trails.
