Hikerlore is completely advertisement free. We don’t want our readers to be annoyed to death with banners and pop-ups. Instead, we focus on providing quality content. Maintaining this site does cost money and significant time investment. So if you appreciate what we do, there are ways you can help!


Buy a photograph! Every image is authentic, meaning it was taken by us during our travels. All images are gallery quality and available in various sizes both print and canvas. We also offer keepsakes such as mugs, magnets, and postcards.

Affiliate links

Click those links! Our site contains affiliate links. This means that if we’ve used a product, and it impressed us, we will link this with Amazon. If you were to then buy that product via this link to Amazon, we would get paid. This is one of the ways in which we support ourselves so that we’re able to bring you Hikerlore.

We do not do gear reviews for companies to earn money. If we’ve written a gear review, it is our honest opinion based on our experiences in the field.

Our readers are important to us. Thank you to each and every one of you for visiting Hikerlore!

Your patronage will allow us to continue to write useful articles about our scenic trails, national parks, and other outdoor travel experiences.  With your help, we hope to launch a guidebook series, educational videos, and a podcast to accompany the blog.  It is because of your contribution that we will be able to continue to discover and give you the skinny on the cool places in outdoor adventure.

Please consider what our content means to you.  Even the smallest contribution means that we can continue to produce for our readers.    

Thank you for your continuing support.  Please contact us directly.  Our readers are our friends, and we want to know you all personally.  Let’s meet up and go for a hike together! For more information about what we do and how to get in touch, visit our bio page here.
