The Good Wolf Pack!

Margaret and Tana

Our Story: We met in the concrete jungle of New York City and slowly made our way closer to nature, now calling Northern Virginia our home. When people ask why we decided to open Good Wolf Gear, the truth is that we were inspired by our friends: they helped set up our first tent; they shared their scary stories around the campfire; and they let us dig into their Dutch Oven breakfasts while we struggled to get our contacts in. We created Good Wolf Gear for them, for you, and for anyone else willing to “share what I learn with my family and friends” while helping one another become better stewards of nature.

Favorite Outdoor Activities: Hiking, car camping, visiting National Parks

Favorite Local Spots: Bear’s Den, Buzzard Rock, Little Bennett Campground, Shenandoah River State Park


My Story: Adventure has been a focus of my life since before I can remember. I have been fortunate enough to travel to many far off places and experience all kinds of different cultures and landscapes. I know all about camping and hiking, but I am most passionate about sailing and scuba diving. Working at Good Wolf Gear has given me the opportunity to help cultivate a sustainable business into becoming part of our Herndon (my hometown!) community.

Favorite Outdoor Activities: Biking, archery, camping, exploring, sailing, scuba diving

Favorite Local Spots: Great Falls, Runnymede, W+OD Trail, Catoctin Mountains, Shenandoah National Park, George Washington National Forest, Seneca Ridge, Virginia Creeper Trail


My Story: I was fortunate to have grown up in the Shenandoah Valley, which fostered a strong love and respect for the outdoors through camping, hiking, fly fishing and, believe it or not, snow skiing! Any time I can sit with someone interested in gear, or talk about where to go on a trip, is time well spent. I prefer going on local hikes with my family, going to the beach for some R&R, or hitting the slopes to get some turns in. If I can’t manage any of those, hopping on my road bike for an hour will do the trick!

Favorite outdoor activities: Skiing, cycling, hiking, backpacking & fishing

Favorite Local Spots: Day hikes at the Billy Goat trail sections with the family; backpacking in Dolly Sods, WV or Shenandoah National Park.  


My Story: My family has always been into the outdoors. Ever since I can remember I have been outside playing, hiking, swimming, etc. I love Good Wolf Gear because of the community that has been built around the store. Seeing everyone come into the store and hearing their stories is something I love. I am Good Wolf Gear's resident climber, so if you have any questions about rock climbing feel free to come up and ask me if you see me in the store. 

Favorite outdoor activities: Surfing, hiking, and rock climbing (I climb at Sport Rock, in Sterling, and outdoors as much as possible )

Favorite Local Spots: New River Gorge for climbing, the Shenandoah Mountains for hiking, and the Devil's Marbleyard
