So you can not get awesome views like this from just walking in your neighborhood (unless of course you live somewhere like this then…enjoy!) However like most people I live in a industrialized city and we have our parks but nothing extreme. Now last year my husband bought me a book from our local EMS store. It has 60 hikes within 60 miles of Philly and we made a goal to complete all the trails before we bought another book. We did a couple local trails first but then we became completely hooked. And by we I mean just me since my husband has always been one for the outdoors. I am here to share some of my starter tips for first time hikers.
