News keeps breaking with new research from leading scientists and universities that have found that escaping to the woods on a hike is not only physically and mentally healthy and a great way to destress, but it’s also being associated with enhanced creativity; something Jeff Alt already knew from his life-long experiences on the trail including an Appalachian Trail journey from Georgia to Maine, a trek across the California John Muir Trail with his wife, a family journey across Ireland shouldering his 21-month old daughter, and over 20 years of exploring wilderness areas around the country. Jeff shares his lessons from the trail with groups, conferences, parks, retreats, churches, corporations and schools to themes such as goal setting, surviving with the bare essentials, taking risks, perseverance, overcoming obstacles, how to enjoy the outdoors, and making a difference.
