Resources and Links for Hiking and Backpacking

Resources and Links for Hiking and Backpacking

Here’s a list of links that can help you in your adventures!

Oregon Hikers – My goto guide for trails in Oregon and a few in Washington.  It has the best information laid out and easy to read, distance, elevation, step-by-step guides and driving directions to the trailhead.

USDA Forest Service – My other goto guide for trails.  Though it only covers certain national trails, not state parks, it gives great information on many of the best places in the Northwest, including the Gorge, national forests, the Pacific Crest and the Cascades.

Hiking in the Pacific Northwest – A great community of hikers on Facebook who share stories, photos, and information.

Pacific Crest Trail 101-A great resource for anyone wanting to hike the PCT or read about it.

My Open Country-An outdoor E-commerce store run by a couple on a campaign to get people excited about the outdoors.

99Boulders – Ultralight Backpacking Gear Vendors List – A cool list of backpacking gear vendors with filterable results.

Sounds of the Trail – A podcast all about about thru-hiking

Hiker Chat – A group on Twitter that meets for hiking discussion on Friday morning.
