Muddie Trails provides real offbeat experiences for the travelers like trekking, hiking, camping, bonfire, adventure activities, barbecue, visiting, exploring and experiencing the less known but awesome destinations that are not crowded with tourists. We do NOT take travelers to a tourist place unless it is required as a filler in the itinerary between two offbeat places.

The organizer will only change the itinerary/schedule if any place cannot be done because of unpredictable reasons.
