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.

Do you feel like you got a lot of snow this year? Check out James Griffiths at the summit of Grey peak in the the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The sign he is pointing to is about 6 feet off the ground which would be above my head. James said that on this 16 mile hike they had to plow through waist deep snow(see the video) for several of those miles; conditions were so bad they had to abandon their plans to hit Marcy and Skylight Mountains. Winter in the ADK High Peaks is something special; the sights, sounds, and views are unreal. Not sure you can do it? Build up your skills in the Catskills or smaller Adirondack peaks like Crane or Snowy Mountain. It is a lot of fun but be prepared, this stuff is tough and can be dangerous.
I have added some new additions to the Fire Tower Page, there will be a ton more this year so keep checking back. The sun is starting to shine more so get outside and hike.
