Backcountry.com’s “Detour” Site Connects Trekkers with Professional Guides

Whether you’re looking for an insider’s perspective on a specific area or you just want to get back home in one piece, sometimes you need a guide. Detour by Backcountry.com is a new site that’ll help you find the right guide for whatever it is you’re doing.

Currently offing trips in Utah, Colorado and the Northeast, Detour is adding more guides and locations regularly. Looks like California’s going to be next, with Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho coming soon after. Per the press release:

“Unlike other adventure services, Detour lets you tap into local guides with the inside knowledge to help you experience the best an area has to offer. All guides are insured professionals, so you can rest assured that you’re in the hands of experts who have spent countless hours mastering their craft. Each Detour trip is outlined in detail with a trip description, itinerary, gear list, guide bio and trip images so you know what’s waiting for you.”
