About Us
MAKING TRAKS owner, Brad Atchison, has spent most of his life plotting trips away from the city.

Born in eastern Canada, pitstopping on the prairies and finally realizing his dream of becoming a West Coast resident, Brad is making the most out of living on the edge of the wilderness.

An enthusiastic hiker, gifted storyteller, biologist and outdoor educator, Brad and his guides will be your gracious hosts and will make your trips memorable.
