Here in our hometown of Boulder, Colorado we're blessed to have hundreds of miles of beautiful trails that we can hike on. Whether we're on a quick trip up Mt. Sanitas or on an all day hike to Bear Peak, the best part for us is the SNACKS. We love snacks, and they are great for hiking. Here's our gift guide for the hikers in your life.

These pumpkin seeds are next level. Not only are Skout’s organic raw pumpkin seeds a superfood: they’re high in protein, zinc, iron, magnesium, and omega-3s, but the flavors!!!! Oh my! Skout adds make them hard to put down, and they are perfect for a fun snack while hiking a fun trail. Skout sources living seeds and preserves their ingredients and enzymes by picking them at the peak of freshness. Then they combine them with rich ingredients like BBQ flavor, Sea Salt, Jalapeno and more. Like all Skout products they are Certified Organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, raw, certified kosher, vegan, and dairy and soy free.
This is the perfect 1 oz pocket-sized pouch of dried organic blueberries, which are pretty hard to find in an easy to carry pack. This is the primary reason we carry them, and highly recommend them for hiking. Hiking can't be ALL about trail mix after all! The blueberries are handpicked, infused with organic apple juice concentrate, slowly air dried, and lightly misted with organic sunflower oil to prevent clumping. There is no refined sugar, trans fats, sulfites, or preservatives.
You might want to skip this one if you're vegan or vegetarian. Then again...Krave Jerky is pretty freaking awesome! Krave Jerky is one of the most delicious low-calorie, high-protein snacks that’s great for any time of day. It uses lean cuts of beef, pork, and turkey to create a low-fat and low-sodium alternative to other overly-processed jerkies. The flavor selection is outstanding. Not your every day jerky, Krave comes in delicious options like Black Cherry BBQ, Basil Citrus, Garlic Chili Pepper, and Pineapple Orange, just to name a few!
This bar is fairly high calorie, but if you want to carry a ton of calories in a small pack, this is a great option. Don’t let the calories or size of this bar fool you, they taste great and are packed full of high quality ingredients, are non-GMO certified and have added Omega 3 & 6. We love the Probar Meal because it focuses on real ingredients that are pressed, not extruded in production. That means you’ll have an easier time eating and digesting the bar and you’ll get it’s useable energy more quickly.
A combination of delicious beef jerky strips and handfuls of nuts and seeds, the Epic Hunter & Gatherer Mixes were inspired by the principles of clean food and eating like our ancestors. Similar to the animals consumed by our ancient ancestors, EPIC cattle are raised in their natural environments, freely roaming and grazing. The fruit and nut mixtures were inspired by foraging diets. They bring together the sweet and tart characteristics of berries while complementing the saltiness of the cured meat. The result? A flavor explosion packed with vitamins, antioxidants, protein, omega-3′s and awesomeness. Bring some with you on your next hike, your next road trip, or just crack some open as an afternoon snack. It’s fun to eat, nourishment for the bones, and makes you feel like a pretty epic dude (or dudette!)
Dried fruit is a great way to get a sweet treat that packs energy and nothing artificial. Steve’s Paleo Dried Fruit uses no preservatives, and is simply fruit, dried. With options ranging from the basic and delicious dried apples, to the more exotic dried gooseberries, or antioxidant rich dried mulberries. There is always something exciting for your palette, and that's why we love this product for day hikes. The bags are super portable and make it easy to satisfy a sweet tooth, and stay paleo when on-the-go. The dried fruit also provides the perfect pre-workout energy, or in a jam, the perfect way to add a bit of umph to a workout.
Whether you are out hiking for a few hours in your backyard, on an all day epic, or out for a week, these products will be a fantastic addition to your hiking fuel!
