Cam Honan’s most challenging hikes

I’d say Cam Honan is the world’s most accomplished hiker.

He’s done more of the best trails than anyone else — and hiked them everywhere in the world.

Needless to say, Cam has faced some life and death situations in the wilderness:

When things get tough on our (much easier) hikes, Cam’s advice is to stop. Think. And try to process the danger as an objective observer rather than a subjective participant.

Be logical. Not emotional.

What is “Bikepacking”?

Currently planning my adventures for summer 2023, I’m looking at bikepacking Italy and Norway. Faroe Islands and Iceland … if I last that long. Perhaps 2-3 months.

Along the way I’ll be doing the BEST HIKES, of course.

On a private Facebook page a bikepacker asked ChatGPT to define bikepacking. Nailed it.

Here’s my bike for the adventure – the Checkpoint ALR 4.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube. Ready for bad weather.

Golden Ears Summit Trail, Vancouver B.C.

This hike is high on my personal todo list.

Explore this 22.0-km out-and-back trail near Maple Ridge, British Columbia.

Generally considered a challenging route, it takes an average of 8 h 18 min to complete.

… best times to visit this trail are March through September. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.

It’s one of our best hikes in North America.

Hudson’s Bay Company Heritage Trail, B.C.

Very few hikers know about this 80km trail starting in Tulameen, BC and ending on the outskirts of Hope.

It follows a first nations route utilized by Hudson’s Bay Company fur traders around 1849.

See a more detailed map.

If you were interested in planning this adventure, buy the 78 page trail book. ($28)

Though little known, it’s well marked with 10 established campsites located at regular intervals. Each has a food cache, seating, fire pits, and outhouses.

Happily, Jean Robert and Gemma posted a super detailed trip report.

There are a number of river crossings.

Some mountain bike this route.

This is one of our best hikes in North America.

Thanks Kate.
