Welcome to The Ready Hiker.
We have created this site specifically to address novice and “every day” hikers. So many times we have been asked “what should I take? Where should we go? How do we get there? What was it like?” This site will answer the many questions we all have about basic to moderate day and long stretch hikes.
This site will share valuable information we have learned on many of our hikes (packing lists, routes, pitfalls, pictures, videos, etc…). It is our goal to make everyone informed before they hike. A prepared hiker is less likely to get into trouble and it far more likely to succeed.
