This hiking questions archive is for your convenience and enjoyment.
It's a fast way to get an answer to a nagging question about how to approach the trail, how to find the best hiking gear, or how to solve a vexing problem so you can enjoy your hiking time.
This archive grew naturally because I've been asked many, many questions about hiking over the years.
And I love giving answers, especially when someone is just starting out as a hiker.
I feel that it's my pleasurable duty to give back some of the training and the wisdom that was imparted to me when I was just beginning to explore what it means to be a hiker.
And to spill a few of the secrets I've learned over my 4+ decades of hiking.
Below you will find a list of hiking question topics that I've answered elsewhere on this website.
I've selected one question on each topic or theme that a lot of hikers are wondering about.
Solo hiking concerns
Trail food selection considerations
Why hike solo?
Sore feet after hiking - what to do?
Being the slow hiker in a group
