Welcome to the Eastcoasthiker trail head. We are a family of hikers exploring the best hiking trails on the east coast. Our hometown is in the northeast section of Pennsylvania so that gets a little more of our attention. Our hikes are usually less than 8 miles and always have something worth seeing. Don’t be afraid to send us some hot spots, we are always looking for cool places to go.
If you hike the Catskills join our Facebook group Aspiring Catskills 3500 Club where you can share photos and trail conditions.

We are starting to see the first reports of snow hitting the higher elevations of the northern states. This Picture was sent in from Christopher Calabrese who was hiking Jay mountain. Snow was falling as he started up the Long Trail in Vermont in early November; later that day all snow had melted with the noonday sun. These northeast mountain ranges get walloped with massive amounts of snow during the winter; the sights and experiences seem unreal. Check out our hike up to the Snowy Mountain Fire Tower in the Adirondacks last winter. The snow was maybe a few inches deep at the bottom of the mountain, but was a few feet deep near the top. Being in shape, having the right equipment, and some winter experience gives you the ability to get out and see things that only happen during the winter.
