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
