Are you often “out-hiked” by the trails?

out hiked hikerprep

Being “out-hiked” often comes from unrealistic expectations.
Lots of hikers either underestimate or overestimate the trail difficulty and adequately plan for it. They ignore the warning signs, rush into the hike and disregard other people’s advice. As a result, they don’t bring enough supplies, their bodies aren’t able to finish the hike, and their stress levels go way up.


But that doesn’t have to be the case. When you plan out your hike, you can create realistic expectations well in advance. You’ll know how long to hike, where to hike, and when to hike. And you’ll feel unplugged from the stresses of life. After all, that’s what hiking is about, right?


Then there are “out-hiked” hikers who often go off trail and can’t get back.
Hikers often go off the path and are lost in the wilderness. They rely on the ever-present GPS and guidance systems which lead them astray. They’re left to be found by search and rescue teams in the back-country or the local parks.


In both situations, it’s easy to see in hindsight when a hiker is “out-hiked”. But how can we avoid being “out-hiked” in future hikes? Can we plan ahead? The answer is, yes!

The "guessing" factor

HikerPrep a system for a beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers who want to improve your hiking preparation skills continually. It shows you how to prepare for a hike and speeds up the process, without being overly general.


Being Specific Is Necessary

That’s because you need to know precisely how to best prepare for your particular hike. It’s not a broad checklist or template you can copy. Instead, it’s sound principles that you can take onto any hike.


However, principles in itself are not enough. Instead, included with the principles is a step-by-step method for best implementing it. Moreover, this method It takes away the “guessing” factor out of preparing your future hikes.


What is the “guessing” factor exactly?

On any given hike, you might bump into a fellow hiker. You might tell them your process of preparing for a hike and ask whether they thought you prepared adequately. You’d get their opinion, but it would vary from hiker to hiker. This variation leaves you confused.


You’re not 100% sure what is working and what isn’t. And you suspect you could vastly improve the results only if you had a clear set of benchmarks and guidelines.

A sneak peak of what's in HIkerprep

Being "out-hiked" is just one of the problems when it comes to packing for your hike. But there are more. A lot more. In fact, after interviewing 260 hikers, they told us a lot more problems they had with hiking preparation. If you had a problem, odds we heard about it. That's why we created HikerPrep to be a complete simple guide to hiking preparation. 

hikerprep using compass and map

How to effectively read a map and using a compass
Most hikers are lost by relying on the ever-present GPS and guidance systems. We’ve all heard stories of rescue teams having to go “find” people in local (non-back country) parks because they go off trail and can’t get back. Moreover, these people are less than 10 miles from civilization. How can you have a great day exploring and get back safely? With HikerPrep we’ll show you a simple way to use a map and compass so you’ll always find your way back, even if you’re only 1 mile from civilization.

hikerprep estimating difficulties

How to correctly estimating the difficulties of a hike
Various hikers have trouble predicting the difficulty of a hike. When they underestimate it, they ignore other people’s advice, don’t bring enough supplies, and feel fatigue a short way in. They try to go on and often end up endangering themselves. So how can hikers better estimate the hike? In HikerPrep, we demonstrate how to find amazing trails that match your hiking ability (even if you never assessed your hiking ability before). After your hike, you’ll be able to say “this trail was perfect!”

How to set realistic expectations
It’s easy to forget the whole point of hiking is to unplug and unwind from the stresses of life. So many hikers have increased their stress levels by 250% because of unrealistic expectations. So how can you set realistic expectations? HikerPrep sets realistic expectations through finding where you hike, how far and how fast you hike. Hiking becomes more stress less and pleasant.

Find a trail that isn’t populated
Hikers often start from the same starting point and often run into much traffic. There are groups of hikers and hiking with them in front of you is unpleasant. How can you avoid trails that are populated? We show you how to quickly find your perfect hike using a 5-million user “online trail search engine.” Not only that but we’ll show you how you can avoid the traffic.

hidden gem hike hikerprep

Find trails that are hidden gems
Most hikers hike the same path over and over again, weekend after weekend. They get bored and try to find another trail that is similar in scenery and excitement. How can they search for these trails? HikerPrep will show you how little-known hiking spots can be revealed through “social groups.” Moreover, you’ll know how to find these groups online with ease.

What hikers Are Saying About HIkerprep

The biggest benefit was discovering what I needed to do quickly prepare for any hike and spend more time on the trails.


I tried it and it worked. Without your help it would have taken me a long time to realize both the importance of hiking preparation, fitness and mindset.

I was stopped in my tracks with the fitness part because that's what I was interested in the most.


I just started hiking again this year and frankly was struggling with the whole hiking preparation part. The information was very insightful and in fact helped me see that my fitness can be improved in three ways not one (among others)!

My fitness level was not what was it was and the information helped me to see how to improve my fitness before my hike. The exercises I came up with are now being used on all my hikes, all because of your book Hikerprep!


While reading and figuring out my exercises, my enthusiasm just blossomed. It also taught me how to set expectations and have the right mindset before hiking. I knew it on a gut level but when I compare to other hikers, I could very clearly see how my mindset just really stands out.

I would highly recommend this e-book because it makes you hike in a totally new and helpful way.

The feature I enjoyed most was how to calculate trail difficulty


I have a very high trail completion rate when it comes to hiking, but I'm interested in tackling harder trails over the next year, rather substantially.

I purchased HikerPrep as I was certain that it would provide useful info about how to actually go about doing that without experiencing excessive body aches, stamina, and mindset frustrations.

HikerPrep confirmed some practices I was already using — showing me why it was working and how to make it work even better. It also gave me an easy to use checklist for preparing for any hike that I choose to do at any time of the day. I feel confident now when I go for my hikes.

Many hikers I know have all sorts of issues on the trails — this should take away some of those issues if not all of them.

There's basically no good reason not to buy HikerPrep. It's hands down the best $30 I've spent this year.

HikerPrep was designed with hikers in mind. Over 260 real hiker interviews were conducted to understand their real challenges. The outcome of the discussions produced numerous word-of-mouth tips that we have compiled into this book. It’s designed to be comprehensive, easy-to-read and helping hikers prepare in an orderly and systematic way. You won’t experience hiking preparation the same again.

With Hikerprep, it’s written in plain English without the boring jargon. We wrote everything and made it as entertaining and easily understandable as possible. It’s filled with everything about hiking preparation explained step-by-step, and complete with dozens of diagrams, tables, and photographs.

Special bonuses (available with premium option)

Premium Bonus #1: 30-60-120 Fitness Calendar and Planner worth $27

A few years ago, my body was aching during and after my day hikes. This aching period only got longer as I continued to age. Then, I discovered a few exercises that helped me recover faster.

I took note of this and created the 30-60-120 fitness calendar for maintaining my body when I'm not on the trails. It helped me minimize the aches and sores after hiking. And now I can go on multi-day hikes.

We recently had this professionally designed and laid out. And when you order the premium package, you'll receive the 30-60-120 calendar and planner with your order.

By the way, I've had numerous people tell me this calendar and planner alone was worth the cost of their book (once it was set in motion).



Premium Bonus #2: Day Hiking Preparation Checklists worth $15

When I was first getting started with hiking, I created a simple quick-reference checklist to help me remember what to pack for each and every hike. And not too long ago, people started asking me for a similar checklist for their hikes.

So I went through my old notes, dug up that original worn-out, hand-written checklist, added a few more critical points and had it done up professionally.

Now it's one of my most sought-after resources - and because it's so near and dear to my heart, I only make it available from time to time.

So until I decide to take it down again (which could be tomorrow or next month, I haven't decided yet), you'll receive a copy of it included when you order the book today with the premium package!
