Hey! Welcome to Distance Hiker

It’s really great to have you here and I hope you enjoy your stay. I started Distance Hiker to help you plan and prepare for long distance hiking in the UK.

All of the articles are written with one aim in mind – does this help or inspire you, my reader to plan, prepare and walk long distance trails?

In addition to the content on the website, I also write a weekly Long Distance Hiking newsletter. It’s informal, fun and interesting. 

I would love for you to join the newsletter community of Long Distance Hikers.
