Episode #47 Lagniappe - The Ins and Outs of Trail Magic

The serendipity of the trail

Note: This Lagniappe was recorded before all of the COVID-19 craziness hit our country and with so many trails closed it might seem strange to be talking about trail magic!! But what better way to pass some time than to plan your future trail magic. Before you know it, hikers will be out there again, ready for some love, care and Little Debbie’s!


Have you ever stumbled up a trail sweating, exhausted, and disheartened, only to find yourself face to face with a smiling hiker holding out a cold drink?? Then you have been the recipient of Trail Magic. Join us as we talk about Trail Magic.... the good, the bad, and the heartwarming beauty of doing it right!!
