Let's spread the wealth of best hiking tips for women hikers far and wide!
This collection of best hiking tips for women hikers was a long time coming...
beginning in 1971 when a 14 year old girl (me!) put on her first clunky external frame backpack and joined a week-long Girl Scout expedition into the Porcupine Mountains of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Then Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior beckoned, and there was no turning back!
That intrepid youngster went on to hike many types of trails, learning (sometimes the hard way) how to take care of herself in the great outdoors.
If you'd like more of the back story (and to see that 14 year old hiker girl), go here.
Now, 4+ decades later, she's put together hundreds of pages of free hiking information just for you.
It's been a pleasure building this hiking resource for women hikers, so please enjoy every page.
And then get out there to hike - and learn - a lot!
Here's a little something you can use for your next (or first) hike.Click Here For Your Free Dayhike Checklist
