Find a Hike

A gorgeous weekend is approaching and you’re looking for a good place to go for a hike. Where do you turn?

Might I suggest LocalHikes.com? Organized by metro areas, LocalHikes lets visitors submit reviews, pictures, directions, etc. to various hiking trails and locations. There’s a pretty decent selection at the site (the Washington-Baltimore area had 58 hikes listed) ranging from easy, paved trails to strenuous trails that have “rock scrambles.” I found a number of good suggestions, including a trail I’ve hiked a few times before (and where I ended up again this weekend). The site’s not overrun with ads, so it’s pretty easy to find what you want without the fluff.

Similar sites worth exploring: TheBackPacker.com’s trail reviews and the Sierra Club’s “outings” section.

Geocaching.com makes for some decent hikes too. I found two with the kids this morning.

I looked and my metropolitan area is not listed. The next closest metropolitan area is listed. This is strange because it is only about two thirds the population of the area where I live.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
