You see pictures of a beautiful sunrise, mountain peak, or glacial lake.  How do you get to that gorgeous spot, that perfect view, experience the soul-cleansing that comes with a hike in incredible national parks or national forests?

I have been hiking, trail running, and backpacking all over the Western U.S. and the world.  This section is designed to help you plan how to prepare to get out on the trails and experience the beauty the world has to offer.  I hope that you get answers from the pages on inspiration, where to go, packing, planning and sleeping, and training.     

I hope you enjoy the Trail Tips section of The World Hiker!
