HikingTheTrail.com began as an online journal chronicling Adam Nutting’s preparation for and hiking of the Appalachian Trail in 2013. 200 miles in, that adventure was sidelined but the journal lived on. Since then Adam has used Hiking the Trail to share his outdoor life through trip reports, travel, gear reviews, tips, and much more.

HikingTheTrail.com has opened up many doors to exciting new opportunities. Since 2013 he has become a Columbia Sportswear #omniten ambassador and worked with both the Sierra Trading Post and Sport Chalet as an ambassador and writer.

In 2014 his passion for the outdoors took flight with the successful founding of the now annual Hell Hike and Raft adventure. This outdoor adventure and digital media press trip led to the founding of Epic Social Adventures with Scott Gauvin from Hikingforward.com.

Stay up-to-date with the latest outdoor industry news, gear reviews, and hiking tips and follow Adam on all of his adventures and journeys.
