About Us

Ozark Mountain Trailblazers Club

The Ozark Mountain Trailblazers Club and its members are a group of outdoor enthusiasts whose mission is to bring people together to help make the Ozark Mountains play a larger role in the lives of everyone. We try and accomplish this through social contact, by bringing like-minded outdoor enthusiasts together to enjoy the company of other backpackers, hikers and trekkers.

Additionally, the group’s advocacy and education efforts also teach low-impact practices and provide a variety of outdoor education and safety skills that outdoor enthusiasts can use whenever they hit the backwoods. We are always looking for new members and encourage anyone with a love for the outdoors and of any skill level to join and be part of something special. While backpacking and hiking are the group’s specialty, we also participate in rock climbing, caving, canoe/kayak and orienteering.  We are also on Facebook and YouTube.
