Hey there, my name is Chris and I’m the founder and editor of confidenthike.com. As an avid hiker and backpacker with over a decade of challenging outdoor experience, I have always been drawn to the beauty and serenity of nature as well as the challenge it presents us. Whether it’s the rugged peaks of the Adirondacks, beautiful Vermont, or the majestic mountains of New Hampshire, I have always found solace and inspiration when out hiking, backpacking, or even just car camping.

Through my years of hiking and backpacking, I’ve gained a bit of knowledge and experience that I hope to share with others. That’s why I created confidenthike.com – to provide insightful guides for hiking and backpacking destinations across the United States. From the trails of Western New York to the hidden gems of New England, we’ve got you covered.

But we don’t just stop at hiking and backpacking guides. We also provide honest product reviews for hiking, backpacking, and camping gear. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner just starting out, we’ll help you find the right gear to make your next adventure a success. With my outdoor experience, I’ve learned what gear will help you perform best out on the trail.

At confidenthike.com, we’re passionate about connecting with our readers and building a community of outdoor enthusiasts.
