SectionHiker: Hiking and Backpacking for Beginner's and Experts

Rating: *****

SectionHiker is your one stop shop for all things outdoor education.  Whether you’ve never taken a forest stroll or you make sure to keep up with your weekly solo Everest climbs, this resource will provide all the info you might need from beginner to expert levels.

The website acts almost as a sort of forum.  It’s got tons of users always posting new articles on different places around the world, simple gear reviews, tutorials, analyses, etc.  Clicking in is a great way to learn about new places to discover - locally or otherwise - get tips on the best gear for you, and find interesting tricks you never would have thought about on your own, but now can’t live without!  It’s also a great place to just be able to forum chat to a large database of people with similar interests to you and discuss with them on the matter of outdoor sports.

There really isn’t much else to say.  I know it sounds like I’m coming off somewhat biased and a bit too promotional, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I thought this resource genuinely was extremely helpful.  Usually when getting gear or looking for places to explore or new things to discover, a lot of searching is involved to find helpful “user feedback” so you can gauge if something really is up to par or not.  This resource eliminates that need for searching.  There’s a constantly expanding stockpile of reviews, threads, and articles just sitting there on just about anything outdoor activities related you might want to know.  Best of all, just like a regular forum, if there’s something you can’t find anything out about but want to, you can just ask users or even open up your own threads to discuss it.  Extremely helpful resource; won’t need to look many places elsewhere again.  Definitely 5 out of 5 stars.
