Hello and Welcome to HelloTrail! We're excited to have you here and even more excited that you probably love the outdoors as much as we do!
Having grown up mostly in the farmlands of the midwest and taking childhood vacations to the Rocky and Smokey Mountains my enjoyment of nature runs through my veins. I feel most at home when I'm hiking a trail and the only sounds I hear are the nearby stream and birds flying through the trees.
If that sounds like you then you are in the right place!
We have lived in Colorado several times - I have trouble planting roots but we plan to add to that 'several' number again soon - and know what it takes to make every minute in nature as memorable as possible.
Our goal is to provide you with the best information about hiking clothes and gear, some of the best hiking trails you can find - and some that hard to find - and any other tips and tricks we can think of that you will benefit from on your next trail adventure.
Traveling and enjoying the outdoors is what we do. Ashley and I have been logging our journeys for almost a decade now and you can find some of our first trips on our very first blog at AshDrew Travels that we started in early 2009.
We really thrive on helping other people such as yourself get as much enjoyment as possible from your adventures. Whether it's figuring out the right boots to buy, an easy day hike in the foothills of Denver or what you even need to get started hiking in the first place - that's EXACTLY why we started HelloTrail!
Thank YOU for being part of the HelloTrail community! Don't be shy and feel free to send us a message with any questions you have or even to share you own hiking adventures.
