Clearwater, FL (September 14, 2016): Bridge Pursuit has entered the outdoor equipment industry because they see a need to get kids and families away from in front of the TV and outside into the great American outdoors.

It has been proven that after spending time outdoors in nature, both children and adults find it easier to concentrate and pay attention. Outdoor play is imaginative, stimulates creativity, promotes problem solving and leadership skills. Every age group benefits from outdoor activity, plus it’s fun.

Being out exploring the great American outdoors helps to develop respect for nature and other living things. Observing creatures in nature, like bugs, birds and squirrels living in their natural habitat reduces anxiety and promotes a feeling of pride and respect for the environment.


“Many adults enjoy the serenity of spending time in nature as a way to escape the stress and craziness of everyday life. Not only can fresh air and natural scenery have a positive impact on adults, outdoor activities for children can also improve the overall quality of kids’ lives.” – South University

“Remember playing outside until mom called you in for dinner? Today’s kids probably won’t. In the last two decades, childhood has moved indoors. The average American boy or girl spends as few as 30 minutes in unstructured outdoor play each day, and more than seven hours each day in front of an electronic screen.
This shift inside profoundly impacts the wellness of our nation’s kids. Childhood obesity rates have more than doubled the last 20 years; the United States has become the largest consumer of ADHD medications in the world; and pediatric prescriptions for antidepressants have risen precipitously.

Our kids are out of shape, tuned out and stressed out, because they’re missing something essential to their health and development: connection to the natural world.” – National Wildlife Federation


Derek Greenwood, co-founder of Bridge Pursuit, stated , “watching my grandchildren grow up mesmerized with cell phones, tv and video games and no knowledge or experience in the outdoors was simply shocking. I asked my granddaughter if she would like to walk down to the lake with me and her response was “No, there’s a hill.” I asked my grandson if he wanted to take a tent and go out in the woods and spend the night. He was like “Ah no, its dark.”

So we decided to create the GoBackTrail line of outdoor products. These are quality items that you would trust to keep everyone safe and having fun. We started with a compact, high quality lightweight headlamp so that kids and adults could walk around in the dark at night but still keep both hands free for safety. It is our GoBackTrail Camo LED CREE Headlamp available on  It is small enough to not get caught on branches and things but bright enough to shine the length of a football field.

Our second product is a waterproof pouch so when you go out to play in the water everyone can still bring their cell phones and not ruin them. In addition, it comes with special pouches for your credit cards and money so prying eyes can’t see what you are carrying. The GoBackTrail Waterproof Pouches are also available on and come in several colors.

Our next two products are a hydration backpack for taking long walks or hikes and an outdoor themed bear picnic blanket to make it nice eating outdoors. Both are designed to get families out into nature and enjoying it safely.

We also created a website that is fun and informative. It talks about and shows great adventures in nature that would interest anyone. There are recipes for picnicking and ones for backpacking plus all kinds of tips on equipment from our expert backpacker. In addition, there are articles on what you can do with kids to keep them entertained in nature.

GoBackTrail is about nature and the enjoyment and care of nature. It is about families, adventures and good times. It’s about cooking hotdogs over an open fire and learning how to make s’mores. Everyone used to camp, let’s not forget where we came from.

So, GO BACK TRAIL, go explore!
