Best Hiking Tips:
Based on long experience

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 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 and learn (sometimes the hard way) how to take care of herself in the great outdoors.

Now, 4+ decades later, she's put together hundreds of pages of free hiking information just for you.

Please enjoy!

  • Spending time outdoors is known to reduce stress and positively impact well being: Nature Therapy.
  • A long hard hike strengthens your cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal systems. And it's way more fun that going to the gym.

These are all great reasons for digging into these hiking tips at your very own fingertips.
