Any hikers in here?

Just wondering if there any outdoorsy types here who like to hike and camp? :-)

I will never see the attraction some folks find in sleeping outdoors (to each his own), but I adore hiking and do so at least once a month and used to go every single weekend. Something with a decent elevation gain, nice waterfalls and great views really gets me psyched!

Yes, I do it for fun AND for work. (Don't I have a great job?)
What is the lure of sleeping outside???! The Milky Way, meteors, aurorae, thousands and thousands of stars sweeping overhead...

I love hiking and camping, but don't do it nearly enough. I need to stock up on gear (small sleeping bag, good tent, headlamp, etc)... I do often go for walks and runs on some beautiful wooded trails nearby. I think once I get more equipment, I'll be more comfortable about going more often...

I LOVE to hike and camp. One of my best trips was kayaking, hiking and camping on the ocokee (sp?) in North carolina for an entire week. It was an incredible time. Sounds cheesy but you really start to think differently when you spend that much time in nature. I used to hike all of the time, haven't now that I had children but I want to make sure they love it as much as I do so when they're old enough, we'll definitely do a family trip.

So to all you hikers - any one in the NYC/northern NJ area? Do you have any favorite hikes around here? I'm a displaced Seattlite, very used to hiking up and then down mountains, not just around some rolling hills. Any suggestions?

Woo HOo! ;-)
Glad to hear that there are other hikers out there.

I like to car-camp. Had my first experience with backpacking last summer 2004 in Denali National Park. It was amazing!!! my hubby & I travelled many miles into the park, and got to go to places that few ever visit... Even saw some wild animals (from a distance).... We had only car-camped until that experience (our hiking friends thought we were courageous to make that our first backpacking experience--we were glad to have taken the plunge though!)

I love dayhiking at the national parks.. have visited quite a few over the years-- we have a "National Parks Passport" book that we carry from park to park and have stamps from the different places we've visited over the years! ;-)

To the NY transplant from Seattle-- Have you explored the finger lakes region in NY? Very cool places around there--I haven't hiked, but it looks like someplace you might check out... :-)

If you have time to travel to Maine, try Acadia National Park!

Woo HOo!

Went on a winter hike with hubby & 5 friends... :-)

We hiked 10.5 miles in 4 hours... It was a great hike in the Michigan woods-- cold and crisp, but not too cold! We even got to see a few hours of sunshine!

Thanks for your post. I haven't been hiking in a while. Great Idea for a winter sunny day!

heck yes! i love to hike, and especially go backpacking. i used to go every year at least once, but i haven't been able to since beginning college. my hiking buddies and i are never on the same schedule anymore. we used to go to the NC mountains, esp in Pisgah national forest, and we definately have had some great experiences. I've even gone canoeing and kayaking a few times too (they're great exercises, but really only for your upper body) and kayaking is definately what i prefer out of those two.

Yay! :-) By the way, if anyone likes to hike, you need to check out www.thebackpacker.com

There are hikers all over the place! ;-)

I'm going to use my treadmill to keep in condition over the winter-- I rarely have the chance to get outside during the week, but hope to work in some more winter hikes down the road--It was really nice to enjoy the crisp fresh air and even a little sunshine last weekend! ;-)

It's been a while since this thread was posted...

Was wondering if there are any hikers out there interested in forming a group, since spring is "here" (well, not where I'm at! BRRRRR!!!)
I'd love to find other hikers in Michigan or nearby-- or just others interested in sharing how they get fit for backpacking or hiking on their local trails! ;-)

Bumping this up! ;-)

Hiking around NY

To the NY transplant from Seattle: Finger Lakes is really in the western part of NY state - might as well count it as another state.

I'm an avid hiker and backpacker. The closest backpacking park is Harriman (within 1 hr from NYC) then you have Catskills (2 hr drive from NYC), where you can backpack anywhere above 3500 feet (??). Adirondacks is farther north - 4hr drive - but so worth it.

You also have an Appalachian trail running pretty close to NY - you can do portions from PA - NJ - NY - CT. Check out NY-NJ Trail Conf for more hiking ideas.

The most rewarding views within 1hr from NYC are in Hudson Valley. I actually broke in my stale legs couple of weeks ago when we had 70 degree weather.
