A Bit About Us

For every one of us there is a journey to be taken; whether it is on foot, by bike, on the water or along the road. Here at Hit the Trail we have a passion for the natural world and the adventures that it has to offer. We have always spent time exploring the outdoors and back in 2014 added a VW Campervan to our family. Over the years we travelled many miles in our van, affectionately known as ‘Colin the Camper’, staying in some beautiful places, hiking through the mountains, kayaking on lakes and cycling through open valleys and along wooded trails.


In 2019 we added a Hero Ranger (teardrop caravan) to our kit with a view to extending our adventures and, with our son recently turning 18, and the way we travel as a family changing, we made the difficult decision to let our Camper go. We do know the family who now have Colin and are excited for them, their children, and the adventures they are sure to have together in him.


Travelling now as a family of three adults both Russell and our son, Ned, have now joined the Jeep community! Both have Jeep Renegade PHEV’s and are loving the freedom and fun these have given them. With the Trail Hawk able to tow the Hero Ranger, and Ned investing in the Klondike Bell tent, we are looking forward to the new places we are going to explore. There has recently been talk of the addition of a roof-top tent so we will see what 2022 brings….


During our travels, we have found the equipment that works for us, so the range we offer includes many pieces that we have tried and tested whilst on the road. We are always looking at new products that are being brought to the market by our favourite brands and regularly post reviews to give you our thoughts on these.


So whenever you are ready to hit the trail, make sure that you have everything you need. We are a small company with a big passion and would be delighted to help you make your adventure the best it can be.
