…can be found here, on Philip Werner’s site SectionHiker.com. As a newbie backpacker/hiker, I have so appreciated having access to a remarkably complete resource such as this. I have spent hours reading Philip’s reviews and commentary, as well as the insights of other experienced hikers contained in the “Comments” section of each post. If, like me, you’re trying to find your footing (pun intended) in this particular world, SectionHiker.com is a great place to start. The site is laid out well, categorized for quick searches and features interesting perspectives on everything (and I do mean everything) related to four season hiking/backpacking.
There’s some great info for the seasoned backpacker/hiker as well. If you’ve never heard of it, check it out!
