Notes from the trail

Welcome to American Backcountry’s Notes From the Trail. Here we share stories, specials and events happening within the American Backcountry community. Each mountain is different and each trip has a different story- these are the Notes From The Trail.

Do you #Hikerchat?

July 16, 2014


If you are active on Twitter and are into hiking, you have (hopefully) heard of #HikerChat. If you haven’t then you are missing something very special every Friday at Noon (EST) on Twitter. For one hour on Friday ourselves, American Backcountry and TETON Sports, host a twitter chat completely devoted to the outdoors and hiking.


From outdoor bloggers, to hiking enthusiasts, thru-hikers, first timers, brands and outdoor non-profits/organizations the #HikerChat group is diverse. At almost any point during the day you can search #HikerChat and find a good conversation centered around the outdoors and hiking. Our new homepage will feature these #HikerChat tweets as they happen. We encourage anyone to join in on the conversation- share tips, tricks and stories



This week on #HikerChat:
