inspired by this brilliant Force of Nature, who is side-splitting funny, has the sweetest warm-hearted soul, and is an all-around amazing human: meet Jesse Cody of Hike the Good Hike (aka The Boston Mule). He will be trekking up the Pacific Crest Trail raising awareness and fundraising for The Youth Mental Health Project.
For the next 70 Days as The Boston Mule scales mountains, befriends wildlife, and adds another 1,300 miles to his already astonishing 7,500 miles of trails hiked in the USA; we will be cheering so freakin loud and donating 20% of our proceeds from the Hike the Good Hike Collection to The Youth Mental Health Project.
So come on along, cheer with us & give a follow to @hikethegoodhike with every step benefiting @ymhproject, and enjoy some amazing GIVEAWAYS of our wooden goods with stunning images straight from the trail!!!
Hike the Good Hike's Story
Late in 2014, after years of struggling with my own mental health issues, I was seriously contemplating suicide. Through a series of serendipitous occurrences, I found myself on the Appalachian Trail despite the fact that I’d never pitched a tent before. It was the walk that saved my life - a 2,200 mile walk.
Many people are stressed, alienated, depressed, and mentally taxed. Hike the Good Hike raises awareness about mental health and helps people cultivate a more positive mind and lifestyle by inspiring them to take time in nature.

The Youth Mental Health Project is a grassroots nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate, empower, and support families and communities to better understand and care for the mental health of our youth.
We envision a world made up of informed families and caring communities that realize and strengthen the mental health of our youth — a world where people are just as aware of their mental health as their physical health, where families are validated and able to readily access the care they need.
