Hike Finder

find-us-on-facebook_logo3Welcome to the Hike Finder!

Developed independently by a friend of the site, the Hike Finder lets you filter and sort all of the trail guides featured on The Hikes page to help you quickly find a hike with the characteristics you’re looking for.

Harvey Kreiswirth developed the Hike Finder for his own use, then graciously agreed to port it here for everyone to use. In Harvey’s words: “Your reviews/guides were great and really helped me enjoy my hikes–I hope the new page helps even more people enjoy their hikes too.”

Really appreciate everything you did here, Harvey – thanks so much!
