Maggie Twitchell, Host Guide Backpacking for Slowpokes

Rave reviews from around the interwebs

We had so much fun!! Maggie was awesome, very accommodating and helpful through the entire process. I can’t recommend this experience enough, if you’re looking for an outdoor snowshoe adventure with your dog!

Claudia, Buffalo, NY

Such a wonderful experience! My group and I got to snowshoe while it was snowing and it felt like we were in a fairy tale. Views were amazing and Maggie goes above and beyond to make it a great experience. Highly recommend if you are in the area!

5 stars-all the way!!!! Beautiful Vermont hike on a peak day for fall foliage-Some of the best pics of our trip! The hike was moderate, Maggie had all sorts of helpful tips to guide us over wet rocks and slippery leaves. Thoroughly enjoyed learning about the area ( and good places to eat). Highly recommend-would do it again!

Wendy, Greensboro, VT

Such an amazing experience, can’t recommend enough! It’s hard enough to find lodging that allows pets but even harder to find activities to also do that are pet friendly. Maggie was an amazing guide and both myself and my dog had an amazing time!

Cameron, Boston, MA

Thank you so much for taking such great care of me! I was a little apprehensive about the whole experience, and worried about the weather, but you made sure I was comfortable and safe and never made me feel like I was holding the group up. I truly appreciated your kindness and thoughtfulness. We will definitely be back in the future – better prepared, of course! Thank you!


Maggie is an awesome guide! She is knowledgeable and relates well to all of her hikers. She gives helpful tips along the way. I had a wonderful time! The hike was worth all of the breathtaking scenery along the way. I couldn’t have made it without the hiking poles-thanks Maggie for bringing extras.

Maggie is terrific. She has a wonderful place to walk, super helpful instruction and is a great conversationalist. I highly recommend spending an afternoon with her as your guide.

Maggie is such a beam of light and the way she guides is so comforting. She had all of these little details that made the experience perfect. Don’t hesitate to book this!!

This hiking experience was amazing. The trail was easy to moderate with many wonderful views and interesting sights. Maggie was knowledgeable, fun, experienced, and prepared. My friend and I had the best day of our week-long Vermont vacation on this hike with Maggie. Definitely recommend you hike with Maggie! She is wonderful with hikers of all abilities.
