Locked down for COVID-19, we’ve had time to do some housekeeping / updating on our dozens of BestHike information pages

Any hiker visiting this page for the first time should start with our top 10 lists.

Top-10The West Coast Trail in Canada is our #1 hike in the world, for example.

Harder Ridge, Switzerland, our #1 day hike.

We feel the best hiking destination anywhere is  New Zealand.  Particularly right now.

I’m planning on the Chinese Wall in Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana myself. June 2020.

Start about 85 miles west of Great Falls, at the South Fork Sun River Trailhead, and hike 23 miles northwest. You’ll climb along the Continental Divide and spot elks, moose, and mountain goats along the way. Once you reach White River Pass, at the southern end of the wall, you’ll find a choice of multiple routes, including an eight-mile trail along the wall that ends at a lookout called Larch Hill Pass.

Trek the 8000m peak base camps

Emma and Trevor — from New Zealand & Australia — conceived ProjectBase8000.

Great idea!

The objective is to be the first non-mountaineering trekkers to hike to all the base camps of the world’s 14 highest mountains by 2020.

They are all over 8,000m, located in the Himalayan and Karakoram ranges – Nepal, Pakistan and Tibet, China.

They want to help raise funds & awareness for the Australian Himalayan Foundation.
