About Us

Hello! We are so glad you stopped by!

What is ‘Lose the Trail’? To be clear, we do not endorse blindly wandering off blazed trails into the woods. We want you to enjoy nature. We’ve been lost in the woods before – calculating how long you can survive on your trail mix is not exactly the ‘one with nature’ experience that we want you to have.  To us, ‘Lose the Trail’ is more about stepping off the conveyor belt of the masses and seeing what’s off the beaten path. A few years ago we visited Yosemite for the first time. There were about 11,000 people in the park while we were there. Once we got about 1/4 mile up any trail we basically had the place to ourselves. One of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been and the vast majority of people never saw anything that was not connected to a parking lot. We’d like to change that.

We decided to start this blog and photography venture to share our love of nature with you! We hope that our adventures inspire you to get outside and see this beautiful earth up close.

Happy hiking!

Jason and Molly

Hi! We are Jason and Molly Dockery, a husband and wife hiking, adventuring and photography duo. We can frequently be found with these beautiful mountains in the background.

This is Fitz… aka Larry Fitzgerald, III

When we are not in the mountains, we are often hanging out with our rescue kitties from Brother Wolf in Asheville, NC. If you’re looking for a pet, they always have lots of beautiful critters looking for homes!

This is Meatloaf.

He’s pretty chill and loves to rub his head all over your face.
