About The Hike Guy

Hello!  I’m the hike guy, Kolby Kirk.  The purpose of this site is to promote the hiking lifestyle through example (both my own and others), to provide tips on how to hike (from the very basic level all the way up), and to help others learn the importance of respectfully exploring our natural areas.

Although this site is named after my favorite occupation, you might find some of my other interests among its pages: photography, sketching, journaling, international travel, and book collecting. I am a very goal oriented person, striving to resolve personal aspirations that seem beyond my limitations. I take my resolutions seriously. I fall short on some, but I have a terrible memory for such failures and continue to push my boundaries.
