Hiking is fantastic, there is so much to see and discover. Not only that, but it is a great way to keep fit too. Hiking can be challenging, especially if you are traveling across tougher terrains.
However, the end goal, when you are looking at the beautiful view from the top of a large mountain, is worth it. There are so many breathtaking views to look at, and it is a great way to socialize with friends and fellow hikers.
While hiking is a great hobby to have, you will need to ensure that you are doing it correctly. Hiking is not just about walking long distances, you need to keep safe, and have the correct gear and boots. Being adequately prepared for a hike is important, from having enough food and water, to wearing waterproofs and hiking boots.
This is why I decided to set up my side, Appalachian Trail Girl, to educate others on everything they need to know about hiking. My name is Emily Winters, and I have a deep love for the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. It is my favorite trail to hike on, and I want everyone to explore and discover its beauty.
This site will be focusing on the best routes to follow on the Appalachian Trail, and the best hikes in the Eastern United States. In addition to this, I will be reviewing and discussing the best hiking gear and equipment available to purchase. These will help to take your hiking to the next level.
