Below are links that I have found to be particularly helpful when planning or scouting a potential area or hike. I hope you find them just as useful! Each of the headings are clickable and will lead you to the main homepage. Underneath each heading are bulleted lists that include particular subpages that I found interesting or of additional benefit. I hope they aid you as well as they have aided me.

Missouri Backpacking

A great blog on hiking the Ozark Trail and one of my favorite National Park Areas (and the very first to protect a river system). Includes information on the trail, topo maps and info on the gear used. Very handy info!
