50 Awesome Hiking Blogs

Mitch Stevens of Southwest Discoveries posted 50 sites they like.


Though most of the 50 are focused on the S.W. USA, we are honoured to be included. 🙂


besthike.comBesthike.com, founded by intrepid adventurer Rick McCharles, is one of the best hiking blogs on the web. It is a comprehensive listing of the world’s best hikes. Rick not only catalogs the planet’s best life changing hikes but provide descriptions. It is no surprise that Rick includes hikes in the southwest as some of the best hikes in the world. Most of the hikes he recommends are challenging multi-day adventures, such as the Zion Narrows for instance. Rick is continuing to research the best hikes on earth, calling his website a “work in progress.”

I’m planning a trip to Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico right now. This list is a great resource.

We’ll hike a different trail each day, including a visit to the Schilthorn summit — a 2,970 meter high summit of the Bernese Alps. Our days will be spent immersed in hiking and writing.

Goal Zero Venture 30 – Rugged Recharger

Goal Zero is going to email me when this device is available – Autumn 2014.

… it requires no rubber plugs on the ports and makes them so water resistant that you can spray the unit off if it gets muddy on a mission.

Enough electricity is stored inside to recharge a GoPro five times (or an iPhone up to three times). Any device that links to USB ports or micro-USB is compatible, and you can connect two gadgets at once. …

Goal Zero
