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.

Every year I try to cheat an early spring by heading south to North Carolina. The nights can be chilly but the days are Phenomenal, plus there are so many big mountains down there it blows my mind; I am talking 5-6000 feet of elevation like it is nothing. They differ from the big ones up north in one way; at 6k’ feet you are surrounded by forest in NC where as Mount Lincoln and Lafeyette in New Hampshire you are well above tree line at 5000′. NC is known for their hot summers and daily thunderstorms so April seemed like the best time to go. Last year we hit two hikes off of the Appalachian trail (AT) Max Patch and The Jump-off; the drive alone to the trail-heads was an experience as we navigated some pretty gnarly back mountain roads. This year we wanted to start our North Carolina Fire Tower Challenge; it will take many years to get to all 25 towers but we had a good start. To see those towers look at the NC section on the map above or check out the “East Coast Trails Page”

Let me tell you about Thorny Mountain fire tower in West Virginia. You can rent it out and sleep in it for $85 a night. It is a great deal and an awesome experience, you have to check it out. On that page is a list of a few other nearby towers you can hit while you are there.


Be well




  • Love the pictures of the kids-and all the pictures, and the narration is damn good!!!

  • Loring and family, you rock! Thanks for inspiring me and others with your motivation for life, wilderness, and awesomeness!

  • On the Pennsylvania Trail with Loring. Good job dude.

  • Always an awesome and interesting hike with ya buddy. You know the route (even when in doubt) and you’re very trustworthy! Can’t wait to hit the Adirondacks again.

  • Awesome page now I can find some great places to hike with the dog.

  • This is a great site. Not sure how I’ve over looked it the past year with all the research I do to find trails here. This is comparable to AllTrails.com but obviously more so for the great area we live in for Hiking. I’ve had trouble with AllTrails having the wrong location for trail heads and or entire trails misnamed and or misplaced. This is an excellent resource. Great Site!

If you ever notice I have made a mistake please let me know, it is important to me that you guys get the right information. email us anytime for anything… everywherehiker@gmail.com

    I hiked Glen Onoko Falls last week and I must say that you were dead on with the description and the beauty of the hike. I’ve since been back 3 times in a week and the view of the valley from the top of the falls takes my breath away every time. Keep up the fantastic reviews!

  • Hi Loring…..just spent some time on your site. Great work! Pics and detail of your hikes are out of site!!! Kathleen and I are going take advantage of all the info and explore some of these fantastic hikes. Your writing must run in the family……thx my friend.

  • Very resourceful. thank you!!! I’m a NEPA native and moved to Elkton, MD. There are several great trails in Delaware and Maryland: Fair Hill, MD Clay Creek, DE are just a few.
