What is RightOnTrek?
RightOnTrek is a tech-based outdoor retailer/ manufacturer. Our company headquarters are located just outside of Glacier National Park in Kalispell, MT, where many of our staff immerse themselves in their passion for the outdoors.  Montana is also where we design, manufacture and test our backcountry meal products.  While our roots are in Montana, we are a global, virtual company with employees located throughout the US and beyond. We strongly believe in protecting our natural spaces and are members of 1% for the Planet, a program where 1% of all sales are donated to nonprofit partners who help protect public lands in the US.

What does RightOnTrek do?
  1. We offer game-changing next-generation backcountry meals that not only taste great but keep freshness, flavor and sustainability at the forefront of our design.
  2. We provide a FREE suite of online software tools for collaborative trip planning and route finding with an interactive map that extensively covers trails, campgrounds/sites, and wilderness points of interest. 
  3. We are trialing our first-to-market, revolutionary “Wilderness Edge” concept this summer near Glacier National Park.  The Edge provides onsite self-service gear rental, food and wilderness essentials vending, wifi, and charging stations for backcountry travelers and front country hikers. Our vision for the Edge is to build one in every trail town, recreation destination, and national park in the West, then beyond.

Where did the idea for RightOnTrek come from?
RightOnTrek.com was founded by a group of friends and backpacking buddies from Silicon Valley. In 2017, we completed the 211-mile John Muir Trail in the High Sierra. During that epic adventure, we developed a shared dream: to open up similar adventures to millions of people who don’t have the knowledge, experience, or equipment for a multi-day backpacking vacation. Within the group, we had all the capital and skills to turn that dream into this company. Six months later, in October 2018, the first version of RightOnTrek.com went live. Since then, thousands of people have discovered our site and used the tools to plan their backpacking trips.

What is the "Wilderness Edge"?
The Edge is awesome!  The Edge is a unique concept in backpacking, camping and day hiking gear rentals, as well as food and essentials purchasing.  It is an automated locker system that allows outdoor adventurers to reserve gear online or to simply walk up to the "Edge"and rent on the spot.  We are trialing this concept at the "Edge" of

Glacier National Park

in Columbia Falls this summer. You can find more details on the Edge by visiting our Glacier page.
