Hiking Questions Archive:
A Hiking Expert Answers

By Diane Spicer

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 since this website began, in 2008.

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 5 decades of hiking.

  • So please utilize this hiking Q & A.
