From my food bag: dinner on the Colorado Trail

Food is Fuel

Are you curious what kind of food thru-hikers carry? Here’s a peek into my food bag as I return to the Colorado Trail. My focus is on getting enough calories with easy meals and not a lot of cooking. (Canister fuel goes fast at higher elevations!)

Of course, backpacking food choices vary based on personal taste and dietary requirements, so your picks may be a little different from mine. Either way, be sure you’re getting lots of healthy fats, plus a balance of carbs and protein so you can hike strong.
