“And into the forest I go,
To lose my mind and find my soul.”
Hello, I’m Elwin Castro, from New England. I love backpacking, but given an opportunity, I’m up for any kind of hiking whether it is forest, mountain or desert area. It provides me a break from worldly troubles and I always come back revitalized and refreshed.
Getting into hiking is not difficult. If you are a beginner hiker here’s a simple tip: All you need to start your first hike is a day-pack, water, and a good pair of shoes. Just get out and do that first hike! You will not forget the experience.
On this website, you’ll find all of my best hiking blog posts, including my favorite trails, gear, and planning tips for hitting the trail. My goal with the website hikingbay.com is to make hiking easier, safer, and more enjoyable for everyone. So take a look around here and find the topics that interest you most.
