Our Mission

For the Greater Los Angeles area’s underprivileged and underserved youth needing a strong community, inspiration, and a healthy lifestyle, Trail Folx is an LA-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing free and low-cost options to participate in mountain sports and activities—empowering them to discover the great outdoors and reach new heights.

Issues We Address

We know there are a lot of barriers to these mountain activities, which is why we have made it our mission to be there for those who want to give their children the opportunity to experience these sports and gain the broad spectrum of benefits they offer.

High Cost

Trail Folx will alleviate this major barrier to the activities and will do so by working with the right partners, bringing in volunteers, and putting our resources towards offering our youth access to gear, transportation and travel, and guides/instructors.

It’s no secret that a major lack of diversity exists in these mountain sports. The truth is that minorities are often left out of the conversation and underrepresented, especially in how they are presented.

But mountain sports are for everyone! We’re on a mission to make diversity more visible and bring more people into the space so that people from all walks of life can feel welcome and included when taking part in these adventurous activities.

These sports don’t have to stop at participation! We will offer our older youth a chance to expand their experience within them, learning more and gaining life experience through employment opportunities within the Trail Folx organization. Through our paid guide ambassador program, they’ll get a chance to be a part of guiding curated experiences for others!
