Acatenango trail work day

Old Town Outfitters practices what we preach: Community based relationships and trail stewardship.

Together with our friends, local community guides, and porters from la Soledad we hiked up acatenango to do some yearly trail maintenance.

This years heavy rains left the trails and campsites on our favorite mountain in bad shape.

In an effort to be a responsible community member we feel that rolling up our sleeves and working alongside the locals is a great way to foster relationships and protection for this amazing place.

Campsite platforms with a front row seat for the eruptions on Fuego.

Big work = big lunch and a siesta.

Come around to Old Town and sign up for an overnight trip up acatenango.
