Trail food: it’s kind of weird. Think about it. When else do you
eat freeze-dried lasagna? Or several protein bars…in one day?
Probably not often. How did trail food become what it is now? And
what did hikers do before the wonders of backpacker meals? In this
episode of The Green Tunnel, we look back at 100 years of trail
food history to understand what hikers ate then and the changes
that impacted the food hikers took out on trail over time.
