Adventure's Edge - Arcata
HIKE, BIKE, PADDLE, CLIMB
Established in 1970 by two outdoor enthusiasts, the staff has grown to include backcountry hikers, mountain bikers, kayakers, rock climbers and more. The success of Adventure's Edge lies in its close connection to these specific sports, and the expertise that comes from constant participation.
Sure, we want to sell you something but we hope we provide you with more than a piece of gear. We hope you come back with a story of the most beautiful sunset over Thompson Peak. We want to hear of your first eskimo roll under duress. We want to share the excitement of the redpoint, the powder, the drop-off. Whether your adventures lead you to Borneo to explore caves or to Trinity Lake for the first overnight camp-out you share with your four-year old.
