Both these hikes are amazing and have their many challenges. Are you eager to lace up your boots and toss your pack on your back but not sure where or when to start? The planning can be overwhelming. I have hiked both these trails several times from both directions. I frequently run portions of the JDF trail so I’m very aware of the current conditions.
Recently, in August of 2019, I spent 9 days in Wales, hiking a portion of the Pembrokeshire Coastal path, such an amazing experience! I’ve hiked or did trail running through several of the local mountains in Vancouver, Whistler, Kamloops and Kimberly.
As well, I spent 3 weeks hiking through South America in Bolivia and Peru’s 12 day mountain trek to Machu Picchu. I’ve taken all the do’s and don’ts from my experiences and designed Trail-FIT to give you all the information you will need, so you can plan your next single day or multi-day hiking adventure with confidence.
“When is the best time of year to go?”
“How long of a hike can I physically do?”
“Am I fit enough?”
“What gear do I want to bring and what gear do I REALLY NEED?”
“Will I be safe?”
“Do I have a backup plan if I get injured on the trail?”
“How will I organize my transportation before and after?”
“How well do I really know my hiking buddy?”
“Is there help on the trail if I get injured?”
“What food do I want to bring and what do I actually need”
“Where and how do I get clean water”
Backpack / hiking boots
Workout gear / runners
Weather appropriate clothing for hike down to beach
Snacks and your lunch
If you can bring your hiking boots and ALL your hiking camping gear in your bag ready to go, you will get a truer experience. If you do not have all your gear, please borrow a backpack and fill it with 30lbs. of sand bags, water bottles, kitty litter!
