Trail Mix began as nothing more than a concept in 2017. At the time, an ambitious young Cam was traveling across the country when he hatched an idea to create a website that would, in essence, beat AllTrails at their own game. This website, called TrailMix, would feature not only detailed maps and trail ratings from avid outdoorsmen across the country but personal accounts of adventure and travel too. Think The Outbound Collective before The Outbound Collective was born.
But things changed as Cam started working with gear companies large and small. He soon found himself in love with all things product journalism, and so Trail Mix instead became a place to review the world’s gear by asking three principal questions:
- What is it?
- What problem does it solve?
- Should you buy it?
