top 10 hiking blogs

As chosen by Tom Mangan:

What’s a hiking blog need to make my personal top 10? Let’s start with:

Timeliness: Newsy, relevant, plugged in to the latest doings and technology.

Stamina: We’ve all got a few blog posts in us, but the best bloggers keep at it for years.

Trail-tested authority: These folks never come home clean on a Sunday night.

Compelling personal testimony: Full of stories that bear repeating.

read the list on Two-Heel Drive.

… I’m a bit partial to #6.

Hey … Three of those I was not yet subscribed to by RSS in Google Reader. Thanks Tom!

Note: Tom’s got the most complete list of hiking blogs online. (The main reason I don’t keep one.) … But he’s recently moved it to the bottom of Two-Heel Drive.

  1. I was hoping you could review a new backpack invention I have on I am including the link and we are always trying to improve it. Please tell me your opinion and if you would, pass it on so we can make this the most versatile pack ever. Thanks.

    I just got this message regarding Xpanda Bags. So nice!!!

    Hi Trey.

    Thanks a lot. I will surely spread your words to my friends.
    I’m a marine biologist and usually we need to find quite a big bag to bring our sampling gears together with our normal stuff. I believed Xpanda is the most versatile bag ever created I think you just need to post up your project to more well known site for outdoor sports and such. Kickstarter needs a lot of advertisement. I hope we all can manage to fulfil your project!

  6. This a great blog for anyone visiting Croatia and a small town Starigrad-Paklenica near the Paklenica national park.

    Paklenica is one of the most beautiful places in all of Croatia, and it’s a place to be for anyone who’s into hiking, climbing or mountain biking, or any other form of adventure sports like kayaking or snorkeling.

    You can learn everything there is about this place on my blog.


  7. Thanks for a great list. I would highly recommend #8, The Hike Guy. Kolby is a good friend of mine and just a great and genuine guy. I would love to see more blogs about the CDT – check out mine for a start! ;)

  8. Greetings and salutations, my name is Steven and I am looking to get a little feedback from outdoors enthusiast.

    I have invented a new, compact toothbrush that offers a real medical value. I have been told that a great deal of hikers/climbers/etc will cut the ends off of a full-sized toothbrush to lessen the load. I’d like to know if this unintended coincidence is of interest to these demographics.

    The name of my toothbrush is The Toof-inger Brush, and it can be found easily with a google seach or at

    Thanks for the help and cheers,
