Thank you so very much for what you do.

I am 65 and a hiker, and a woman - and reading what you write is like talking with a friend... There is not enough room here to say how many thank you's I have.

I am looking forward to each newsletter!


Why does Hiking For Her offer all this
to you, free of charge?

Because females do things a little differently than the guys!

We like to stick together and get it done on the trail, by celebrating our differences and maximizing our strengths.

Together, we're stronger hikers.

And we like to share :)

This hiking tips website is free to use because that's what women do: share tips, encourage and learn from each other, and having a great time on the trail!

Hike a lot smarter with these hiking tips!

It's smart to spend time planning and learning, before you hit the trail.

Not only is that the path to a shorter learning curve, it makes you a safer, smarter hiker.

And once you're on the trail, knowing you have the right gear and hiking food, you feel confident and ready to enjoy yourself.

That's exactly what I want for you!

Allow me to modify this famous saying just a bit:

The more that you read,

the more things you will know,

the more that you learn,

the more places you'll go.

~Dr. Seuss

And the more places you'll go hiking!

So dig in and explore all the best hiking tips.

It's a pleasure creating this hiking resource for women hikers, so please explore and enjoy each and every of the over 700 pages of hiking and camping tips.
