Hiking doesn't ALWAYS have to be on a trail - sometimes, exploring new neighborhoods is just as rewarding.
Don't have time to get out to the mountains, try urban hiking. Urban hiking is a great way to stay physically fit while jumping between city plans.

Looking for a good post-rain hike in SD County? Boucher Hill has history, oak woodlands, and stunning views. Go get your boots muddy!
Climb up to an active fire lookout for stunning views, fall color, and a walk in the woods.

One of my all-time favorite trails.
Hike to some of the world's largest natural bridges, pictographs, petroglyphs, and Pueblo ruins in this beautiful and often overlooked National Monument.

In a new update to our crowdfunding campaign, I go a little into the history of the site, what our purpose is, and why helping Modern Hiker is helping the entire outdoor community grow and adapt to a new generation.

We've got some great perks on our crowdfunding campaign - and the FIRST to sell out were a pair of awesome sleeping bags from TETON Sports -- well, our friends have helped us out again, and now you can snag either a 20 or ZERO degree bag for contributing to our campaign! http://buff.ly/1J8ZCmV

Your weekend's almost here - so why not hit one of the best post-rain trails in L.A.? See you outside!

President Obama signed the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument into existence last October -- but even the signed proclamation left many questions unanswered.

Last night, a packed house gathered at an informative panel meeting to learn what's next for the San Gabriels, how they can get involved in the Monument process, and if anyone really knows why the Arroyo Seco and front range were excluded at the last minute.
A crowd packed the auditorium at the Eaton Canyon Nature Center last night to find out what was in store for the future of L.A.'s new National Monument.
