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.

Our fall foliage trip took us south this year to West Virginia, we timed everything right, unfortunately fog persistently blocked all or our views in the peak foliage areas. It was frustrating but we had such a great time it hardly mattered. Check out our trip to Hanging Rock Observatory and High Knob look out tower hikes, both in WV. I was so impressed with the “Mountain State”; the beautiful scenery and opportunity for adventures seemed to be everywhere.
We are officially in between seasons and it is tempting to turn our attention to work and the kids schooling. I would caution against this as you would be missing out on one of the best times of the year for hiking. For starters, a cool day makes for a more comfortable climb up a mountain; just remember to pack some warm clothes for when you take a break at the top. Also with the leaves no longer in the trees new views open up and you will not have to trudge through a foot of snow to see them. I am putting the snow pack link up so you can get an idea of what you are in for as you plan your trip. As always I love to hear your stories and see your pics, keep me posted. firstname.lastname@example.org
