Welcome to Hiking.biz - where Hiking is our Biziness !

We hope that you will find our website interesting, fun, rich in information content, with an earthy tone and relaxing design.

Here, you can purchase the hiking equipment you need for camping and hiking and also find information on how to select, use and care for your hiking gear.

In addition to hiking equipment, we present a hiking guide in the form of hiking tips, general hiking information, hiking philosophy & practice, and hiking gear list & checklists. We supplement this instructional content with favorite hiking destinations, photos of landscape, flora and fauna, and interesting tidbits of research and personal experience.

NOTE: your Internet browser may be blocking the photos below, which periodically rotate via Java Script, so you will need to allow such in order to view these delightful photos.

Our Hiking KIDS section is particularly useful to parents who would like to take their children into the backcountry, providing both the hiking gear and the hiking help necessary for a safe, memorable, family backcountry adventure.

Again, we sincerely hope that you enjoy the Hiking.biz site, and that you also find the hiking equipment you need for your hiking, camping, canoeing and other backcountry activities.
