The Pathfinder is an independent specialty outdoor equipment store in Manhattan, Kansas. We opened in 1975 and specialize in gear and clothing for bicycling, backpacking, paddling, climbing, traveling, fly fishing and other outdoor activities. As of November, The Pathfinder has become part of the Alpine Shop family. Alpine Shop, with several locations in Missouri, offers the same high quality clothing and gear and personal customer service that you’ve always enjoyed at The Pathfinder, and now they bring a new vision and perspective to our business. We have new brands and new product — come in and see them!
