Hiking Questions Archive:
Look For An Answer Here

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.

How this archive works

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.

  • Click on any topic you're wondering about.
  • By the magic of electrons, you will be whisked to a page where the complete question, and my complete answer, is available for your perusal.
  • And there will be links to further information, too.

If you have a hiking question about a topic that you don't see answered here, please use the contact form at the bottom of the page to ask your question.

I'll send you a private message, and ask your permission to post your question here for others to see.

And if you find yourself unsatisfied with my answer, let me know.

  • Was it too brief?
  • In your opinion, was it wrong or incomplete?
  • Or do you have additional information to add to make it a more well rounded answer?

I'd be happy to post your reply and suggestions at the end of my answer, if you're willing.

The goal of this Q & A archive is two fold:

  • to share trail wisdom with each other,
  • and to help new hikers feel confident and strong on the trail.

Hopefully, without repeating myself!

Or boring anyone silly.

I hope you'll find what you're looking for here, or that you will contact me to get your questions answered!
