Trails Carolina Staff Bio

Thor Jones

Wilderness Team


Thor Jones

Adolescent Field Director

Thor oversees our field department as the Head of Instructor Development. He helps coordinate group scheduling and staffing, in addition to visiting groups weekly to support students and staff alike.

Before coming to trails Thor earned his degree in Elementary Education from Montana State University and taught 4th grade in his home state of Alaska. He has also spent time as a river guide all over our fair nation as well as abroad. Thor credits much of his own mental and emotional development to time spent in the wilderness, and enjoys few things more than sharing the healing power of the outdoors with young people.

When he isn’t visiting a group or working to support field staff he can be found on a river paddling, fishing, or just watching the bubbles.

Trails saved my daughter’s life. Amanda is an amazing human and a brilliant therapist. I am so grateful to her, Science Steve, and the other wonderful people who could reach my daughter at a time when I could not.

Great life changing experience for our son. After becoming addicted to gaming during covid he was very depressed. At Trails he experienced the wilderness, Science Steve, learning survival skills and top notch therapy and support etc… I highly recommend! This gave our son and our family a renewed family bond full of love and excitement about his bright future.
