Inspired by Adventure

We've taken the best features of our best-selling Trailhead Adventure Pants to create the only pair of shorts you need. Whether you're hiking, climbing, biking, or just lounging under the shade, the Trailhead Adventure Shorts have you covered.

Shorts so comfortable you'll never want to take them off

Four-way stretch that moves with you

Our revolutionary fabric stretches in all directions, not just two, so you're free and clear to move how you want.

Unique fabric inhibits the growth of bacteria so you can do more and wash less.


Stuff 'em into the front right pocket and they're ready to go.

Spills come clean in a second

Don't let a little water ruin your day. Our eco-friendly DWR finish not only repels water, but makes stains and spills bead right off while maintaining all-season breathability.

The Trailhead Shorts are my all time favorite for every adventure. Now, I can have the same durability, comfort, and mobility as the Trailhead Pants, but with shorts! They’re perfect for the summer season.

I used to have a pair of old basketball shorts I would wear around the house and to bed, you know, lounge shorts. Overtime the elastic band on the waist gave out and they began sagging, really sagging. When I got the trailhead shorts, I put them on and immediately tucked the old basketball shorts in the corner never to be seen again. These are my new everyday shorts. Not only can I lounge in them, but I can hike in them, wear them out on the town, and workout in them and be extremely comfortable. Just like the trailhead pants, they dry insanely quick and are easy to keep clean.

Comfortable! The perfect companion to the Adventure Pant.

I love how these shorts feel. Soft, flexible and water resistant. When I don't know what to wear, I grab these!

Perfect travel shorts

These shorts can do ANYTHING! from fancy dinners to hiking mountains, I wear them to everything!
I got them in 2 colors (the olive color is gorgeous) and I haven't worn anything else.
I love coalatree products, there all so functional and beautiful!

These shorts are a must have

Both my husband and I love the pants and so I bought a pair of the shorts for my own Christmas gift ! Love them as much as the pants, the same quality but short ! What is NOT to love ?

3 pair

Yes, now I have 3 pairs of these shorts. One in each color except black. Once they get in the black in a size medium I will have all 4 colors. They are that comfortable and I love the pockets! Also they have the best customer service. I had few exchanges because of sizing but no problem with in a week I had the perfect size. Thankyou Coalatree!


Highly recommended!
Very comfortable and plenty of pockets! The fit is perfect. It has a little stretch to the fabric which why it makes it comfortable

Great products

I am so pleased with everything I have purchased so far. The shorts are great looking, fit well. I got a small and am 5’5”, 120#

Good shorts

Nice light material, lots of pockets, length is good and arrived within a week from shipping dispatch. Price was pretty good considering the versatility/good fabric. I got a medium to be on the safe side so wouldn't risk being too tight around the thigh (judged from the pictures in the size guide) but probably could have gone with a small... Still fit well though and are comfy. Waiting for summer to give them a proper test run.

Awesome shorts

Can’t say enough about these shorts. They fit as expected, don’t hold stains ,stretch really well and and super comfortable.
Just wish they had more colors.

Best shorts I own!!

I absolutely love my Trailheads! I got them for a summer adventure and became obsessed with them haha! I wore them around town, hiking, boating, relaxing—you name it, I had them on. They are so comfy that I could have easily slept in them too. I sweat a lot and easily no matter what I am doing and found that I could easily go several wears before I had to wash them, something I've never found in other shorts. When I can afford it, I plan on getting several more and the pants too! I am a Coalatree fan for life—fantastic product!!
