Our founder Jimmy Funkhouser grew up in Indiana, and if you’ve ever been there, you know finding elevation is a challenge. After developing an obsession for John Muir literature he decided, on a whim, to take a last-minute trip to the Smoky Mountains to spend some time on the Appalachian Trail. With his roommates in tow, he spent a poorly planned, but eye-opening week on the trail that left him physically decimated, but spiritually changed. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Since then, Jimmy has been an outdoor evangelist, finding every opportunity to escape to the mountains, and bring people along with him. His passion is connecting people with adventure, and helping everyone find their “feral” side.

Eventually, this passion for the outdoors became Feral Mountain Co. We are new to the Denver scene, but founded on the sole guiding principle of creating adventure for our community of outdoor enthusiasts.

Life is best lived outdoors, now let our team help you find the right tools and create the perfect plan to do just that. Come in to find out how we offer new and intrepid explorers alike the chance to see the world in new ways with the best community around.

JENNIFER CLARK

Favorite Outdoor Activities – Trail Running, Backpacking, Sport Climbing, Hiking and Camping

Outdoor Expertise – Backpacking experience – 15+ years. This includes planning trips, preparing and dehydrating meals, packing and guiding others through their first backpacking trips.
Running-I’ve been long distance running for 12 years and within the past 8 years have transitioned to only trail running.

Bio – I grew up backpacking with family in Southern Colorado and New Mexico and in my adulthood have continued to take several trips a year throughout the United States and Canada. I’ve backpacked a few days to a few weeks at a time and have started making and dehydrating my own meals to supplement these adventures. In addition to local trips around New Mexico and Colorado’s wilderness areas, I’ve also backpacked, camped and hiked in numerous wilderness areas and National parks including Yellowstone, Grand Teton, the Great Smoky Mountains, Shenandoah, the Lost Coast, Redwood State Park, Zion, Arches, Bryce, Canada’s Yoho, Jasper, and Banff National Parks, and the Cajamarca region of Northern Peru.This past summer I completed my longest solo trip (about 800 miles) when I through-hiked the Colorado section of the Continental Divide Trail. This amazing trip has inspired me to pursue the “Big 3” trails in the continental US, starting with the CDT!

When I’m not off backpacking, I love trail running around the Front Range and throughout the Colorado Rockies. Though I don’t have any official trail races under my belt yet, my goal this year is to run my first ultramarathon!

Favorite Outdoor Activities – When it comes down to it, I just like being outdoors. Any activity will do… that said, some of my favorites include: backpacking, hiking, snowboarding, skate skiing, disc golf, kayaking, fly fishing, and mountain biking.

Things I’ve Done / Places I’ve Gone / My Story – After graduating college with a degree in Natural Resources, I decided that I wanted to experience the wonders of the natural world first hand, to better grasp how they are being impacted, used, and enjoyed. Though I enjoyed my weekend forays into the wilderness while backpacking, I knew that I needed to take my efforts to the next level if I wanted to seriously see nature. In 2012 I set off to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. This incredible experience changed my life in many ways, some of which I am only now realizing. For starters, it set the foundation for the next few years of my life and marked the beginning of my hiking/adventure “addiction”.

In an effort to remain close to the trail and it’s community, in 2013 I took a position working at Baxter State Park, the northern terminus of the AT. Exploring Maine’s incredibly rugged mountains while at the same time witnessing the many thru hikers completing their epic northbound journeys struck a fire in me… I had to hike again. In 2014 I headed out on a trek from Mexico to Canada along the 2600 mile long Pacific Crest Trail. Along the way, I documented my hikes via Youtube and shared the beautiful wilderness areas of California, Oregon, and Washington with the world. After the PCT, I headed to Durango, CO for the winter, started an official outdoors blog about my adventures, and fell in love with Colorado. But soon the trail beckoned, and before I knew it I was again hiking from Mexico to Canada. This time through NM, CO, WY, ID, and MT along the spine of the Continental Divide Trail. By far the most difficult and demanding trail yet, the CDT was an epic experience that really helped to hone my outdoor skills.

Currently, I’m back in Colorado and staying close to the mountains I love! Though I may not be hiking this year, I continue to blog and produce videos that help to share the knowledge I’ve learned from my trips and experiences. It’s my hope that here at Feral Mountain Co., I can get others as excited about the wilderness as I am. Let’s get out there!

Outdoor Expertise – Over these last few years, I’ve spent more time outdoors than in. If you have questions on anything related to hiking, backpacking, camping, thru hiking, or gear of any sort, I’ve probably got an answer for you. In addition, I’ve hiked in many locations and parks throughout the continental US. If you are heading out on adventure and need some advice or if you need some inspiration on places to go adventure, let me know. I am also really big into DIY projects and making my own backpacking gear. If you are thinking about starting a project or want to know how to start, let’s talk.

JOSEPH HOBBY

Favorite Outdoor Activities – Climbing, Hiking, Skiing, Trail Running, Road Cycling

Story – My story begins as a small town kid growing up in South Georgia amidst my family’s farm and plentiful woods to explore. We traveled a good bit growing up, Yosemite, Alaska, Canadian Rockies, but never allowing for more than a week of exposure to these amazing places. During my teenage years I moved to North Georgia, rediscovering my love for the mountains and reassuring my desire for the endless adventure within them. After dedicating several years to climbing all over the southeast I shifted my sights elsewhere. In 2014, I began a 9 month pilgrimage climbing all over the western US. I gained a proficiency in many different styles of climbing from alpine mountaineering to traditional big wall. Today, I’ve climbed in over 20 States and 3 Countries. Along with these ventures I’ve guided whitewater rafting trips, hiked to the summit of 25 State Highpoints, road and mountain biked many an evening, developed a blog, Wild-Paths.com and continue to train for challenges and more fun outside.

Expertise – I’ve immersed myself in the outdoor recreation field for ten plus years. It wasn’t until recently that I crossed this passion over into the outdoor industry. For the past year I’ve studied gear and worked in outdoor retail priding myself with an extensive education regarding product knowledge and the best fit for a customers needs and wants while engaging with nature. Whether climbing a granite dihedral, hiking up a vast scree field, skiing a coulior or paddling whitewater I can help you with your adventures in the great outdoors.

Must-do in CO – Climb, hike, run or crawl up a 14er!
