20 Best Women Hiking Blogs & Websites by Feedspot puts Hiking For Her at #1.

These very kind words from William Kemsley Jr. (yes, THAT William Kemsley Jr, the founder of Bacpacker magazine), March 2020:

"It’s good to see how much inspiration there is for hikers on the Internet during this coronavirus pandemic.

The best one catching my eye was by the site editor, Diane Spicer’s Hiking For Her blog. It is also a remarkably professional website. And, while Spicer aims her magazine’s focus to women hikers, she offers a treasure of hiking and gear information useful to all hikers."
