Our Story

The Outbound was born out of frustration.

We all love the outdoors. Unfortunately, existing resources for discovering and exploring new outdoor activities and locations made it a pain to find amazing new places. We decided we could do better.

Let's make the outdoors more accessible.

We built The Outbound to spread the excitement of outdoor adventure, whether just down the street or across the globe, by inspiring people to discover, explore, and share their favorite activities and local playgrounds.

It is our hope that by making it easier to find relevant information and harnessing the power of our community, we can encourage more people to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors.


As individuals who love the outdoors, we believe that the stewardship of our favorite playgrounds is our responsibility. We're commited to constantly improving the level of education within our community and ensuring that our users are prepared to responsibly enjoy the places they find on The Outbound.

The Team

These are the folks that keep things running smoothly (most of the time). We come from a variety of backgrounds and outdoor interests. We're hikers, surfers, climbers, paragliders, mountaineers, and fishermen, all united by a shared passion for the outdoors.

We're not currently hiring, but send us an email at jobs@theoutbound.com if you think we should reconsider :)
