Welcome to the wonderful world of hiking. I’ll say up front that it’s not for everyone, but for those of us who love it (or want to begin it), there’s nothing better. How else can you view gorgeous scenery and get a full measure of fresh air and healthy, enjoyable exercise at the same time?

This book is to lay down the basics of hiking. I’ll give you a basic overview of how to get started, which backpack makes sense, and what kind of hiking boots (and hiking socks) you should have, as well as a quick overview on how not to get lost – important!

Hope you enjoy! Here are a few of the chapter headings:

Getting Started
Basic Training For Beginning Hikers
Basic Safety Tips for Hikers
Backpacks 101 & Backpack Buying Tips
Buying Hiking Boots and Socks
Navigation Using a Compass, Maps, GPS Devices and even the Stars and Sun
