Because this stuff builds character

Slick & Twisted Trails aims to help people experience the outdoors in unique ways. You’ll find profiles of little-known treks, feature stories on unusual wilderness activities (night hike, anyone?) and gear reviews tailored for those who shun the beaten path.

S&TT is focused heavily on hiking and backpacking, however, you’ll also find articles on snowshoeing, climbing, skiing and mountaineering.


Who writes this stuff?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m a journalist and travel copywriter living in Nanaimo, B.C., Canada.  My wife, Shawneen, and I have hiked along Vancouver Island’s drenched west coast during storm season and we’ve trudged up to remote ruins in the mountains of Peru. Anywhere the crowds are scarce.

We love to include new voices in S&TT. If you have an idea for a guest post, please contact me.
