  Hit The Trail - With Denise Traver

After years of working as a Grand Canyon National Park backcountry ranger and then as a field instructor for the Grand Canyon Field Institute (please see my bio), I've decided to share some of the things I've learned while working with the public and during my own backpacking experiences. So often while working in the canyon, I would see people having the worst time of their lives in one of the most glorious places on earth! And with just a little more knowledge and preparation, they could actually be having a good time. I know that's a radical concept, but stick with me. I'll do my best to prove it to you!

This site is dedicated to hikers of all ages who enjoy exploring the great outdoors.

As a late life hiker, I first hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in 1999 at age 53. Like many people, I was completely awestruck by its beauty. I continue to hike the Canyon at every opportunity. The majority of this site reflects my love for the Canyon. I will add other hiking venues to this site as my time and travels permit.

OK, so it's not the Grand Canyon. But, people I meet on the net are frequently asking me what I do for hiking when I am not in the Grand Canyon, so I decided to put together this little page to finally answer that question.
