We Hike to Make a Difference.
For the past eight years, our annual charity hikes have raised close to $150,000 to support our scholarship fund for LGBTQ+ youth and services to the community.
The Lost Coast, California
Length: 28 miles • Elevation Gain: 6,624 feet
September 11-12, 2021
Fifteen trailmixers trekked the rugged 30-mile trail in the Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, the southern part of the Lost Coast. This backpacking journey had stunning views, and though the trail is at sea level, the group climbed closed to 7,000 feet in the 3 days of the trip. Both Team Langley and Team Lost Coast raised over $65,000 for the Trailmixer OUTdoor Access Fund, providing scholarships for underserved LGTQ+ youth through our partner organizations.
Mount Langley, California
Length: 23 miles • Summit: 14,042 feet • Elevation Gain: 4,688 feet
July 15-18, 2021
A record 17 trailmixers took the challenge to climb this gorgeous Sierra Nevada fourteener. We set up camp at 11,000 ft and enjoyed the utterly stunning Cottonwood Lakes and Mount Langley as backdrop. On the second day we visited Lake Muir, and reached the summit on the 3rd day. And the best part is that both Team Langley and Team Lost Coast raised over $65,000 for the Trailmixer OUTdoor Access Fund, providing scholarships for underserved LGTQ+ youth through our partner organizations.
Mount Shasta, California
Length: 30.6 miles • Summit: 14,179 feet • Elevation Gain: 8,559 feet
July 16-19, 2020
We assembled a stellar team of 11 volunteer climbers to trek up one of the most gorgeous mountains in California - Mount Shasta. The experience was an incredible challenge physically and mentally. We all worked hard to get our climbing gear organized, our arses in gear with training hikes to maintain the ascending trajectory of our fundraising. And we did it. We raised over $30,000 and all monies went directly to Trailmixer programming for deserving LGBTQ+ youth.
