The Outdoor Society is Douglas Scott. Douglas Scott is nationally recognized as an expert on the Pacific Northwest’s Olympic National Park and the crown jewel of the National Park’s Yellowstone. With works featured in magazines, website and publications across the nation, you can be sure his information is accurate and inspiring.  The Outdoor Society has established itself as a leader, flourishing in the rich soil of the Pacific Northwest. In just a short time, we have weathered storms and rough winters, becoming a trusted and respected, long-lasting cornerstone of the Pacific Northwest outdoor recreation community.


The works published by the Outdoor Society are positive, inspiring, colorful and sexy, everything you deserve from a guidebook, calendar and coloring book. We want to share our love of the great outdoors with you, not hold onto it for ourselves. Our books will motivate you to start hiking for the first time, encourage you to explore a bit longer and even possibly transform you into a long-distance hiker or trail runner. We want you to head out in every weather and to love nature adventures in the Pacific Northwest as much a we do. We do this through incredible writing and impossibly gorgeous designed books, intertwined with jaw-dropping photography. We are not your parent’s guidebook company. We focus on nature, not ourselves and are dedicated to making sure you can always find the perfect adventure out in the wild lands of the Upper Left Corner of America.

The Outdoor Society published works invite you to take adventures to waterfalls, lakes, mountains and rivers. We want you to join us on trips to the ocean, to volcanoes and into underground caves. With the collective works of The Outdoor Society, you can feel confident you will stay updated on road and trail conditions; learn which gear is best for you and which areas are best for any weather. If you are looking to be inspired to explore your “backyard” National Park or looking for tips about one you are vacationing in, the guidebooks published by Outdoor Society will help you get there with our accurate and immaculate pictures and words.
