About Us

Adventure's Edge was started in 1970 by two outdoor enthusiasts who were drawn to the area by its natural beauty and by the local college, Humboldt State University. They stayed because the Northcoast offered a wealth of opportunities for fun in the ocean, rivers, forests and on the mountains. They settled here because the town of Arcata possessed the qualities of "community" -- sharing, giving, growing, being responsible and supportive -- that encouraged them to establish roots.

Adventure's Edge Today

Today we carry on in the tradition of our founders, helping our customers get informed and geared up with everything they need to explore the local terrain. For over 40 years Adventure's Edge has been providing excellent service & knowledge on all outdoor adventure needs. Hike, Bike, Paddle or Climb, we've got what you're looking for!

The current owner, Jennifer Johnson, is a Humboldt native. She got her MBA at Humboldt State University in Business Administration. She is an outdoor enthusiast as well as avid cyclist and back packer. She purchased the Arcata store in 2008, and opened the Eureka location 2010.
