Heliconia, the video production company behind the hit television show Epic Trails, is excited to announce that Season 5 of the Telly Award winning series will premiere on Bally Sports Network on June 30th.

Beginning with South Dakota, Season 5 of Epic Trails will feature one awe-inspiring destination after another, including: Utah, Mexico, Peru, British Columbia, and Montana. The adventures range from hiking through the awe-inspiring Badlands National Park, packrafting through newly exposed canyons in Lake Powell, Utah, summiting the fifth highest mountain in Mexico, camping along the Southern Gulf Islands, and exploring the varied and beautiful landscapes of Helena.

In addition to the North American adventures, Eric travelled overseas to Peru for a month-long backpacking trip through three distinct regions: Cusco, Ancash and Amazonas. This trip was three years in the making, having been postponed numerous times due to COVID-19. As Eric described one leg of the Peru trek, “to hike along a corridor of pristine Inca Trail is a true pleasure, and I don’t know how to describe it other than to say it is a hiker’s dream.” Needless to say, the Peru trip was worth the wait.

Between airings, Epic Trails fans may access inspiring content on the Epic Trail’s Facebook page, Instagram account and blog (www.in4adventure.com). Subscribers to the show’s YouTube Channel, BackpackingTV, will enjoy a steady release of new content including unbiased gear reviews, backpacking tips, and episodes of Trackin’ Dirt – an exciting digital series released in conjunction with Epic Trails.
