About Hiking With My Brother

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, our enthusiasm for the outdoors was cultivated at a young age by trips to the Columbia River Gorge, Bend, Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, etc. After college we sought out a new challenge and decided to tackle Mt. Rainier. After months of training we’d reached our goal and attained Columbia Crest on September 7th, 2008. 

In the weeks that followed we resolved to keep up our training regimen of weekly hikes to stay in shape.   Idle trail talk led us to set a goal for ourselves: explore all the hikes in Harvey Manning and Ira Spring’s 55 Hikes around Snoqualmie Pass.  Before long, we decided it would be fun to track our progress, and hikingwithmybrother.com was born. 

The website has improved a great deal over the years.  Our trip reports focus on recommending hikes we like, detailing the pitfalls, capturing the essence of the hike in pictures, and striving to give a little extra background to the hikes we do.  We’ve moved beyond the confines of Snoqualmie Pass, while still working toward our original goal.  Along the way we've met a lot of hikers and outdoor lovers, as well as partnering with Backpacker Magazine, Seattle Times, Washington State Parks, and WTA. Today we continue to hike almost every week, but we no longer do it simply for the exercise, we also do it for everyone that follows hikingwithmybrother.com and enjoys up-to-date trail reports, out of the way destinations, and adventuresome hikes.

We hope you like what we've put together for you here at hikingwithmybrother.com and use us as a resource in the future.  Please feel free to drop us a line at hikingwithmybrother@gmail.com.

Hey! I just downloaded your free app and I can't tell you how awesome it is to have updates of the local trails. I've lived in the puget sound my whole life and have been looking for something like this for a while!

Love love your site, so much valuable info.
Do you guys do mountain fishing info?

Thanks and good job



Jer said...

Hi Chris, We don't focus too much on fishing, but we might be able to answer a specific question as to whether or not there are fish in a particular lake. :)



Peiffer said...

Well done site! I especially like the pop-up stats of distance and elevation gain.

Nice site, you have covered many of my favorite hikes from my 20 years spent in the Seattle area. I would love to see you guys cover some of the Southern Washington Cascades such as Indian Heaven Wilderness, Panther Creek Falls, Guler Ice Caves, big lava beds, any of the MANY waterfall hikes along the Lewis River, and the Hot Springs along the Wind River. All fantastic hikes with great rewards!

Of all the sites on the internet this is the BEST. The pictures are fantastic as well as the explanations. Who needs to hike when you can hike from home?!!! You have done a great job so keep up the good work - your mom should be proud of you.

Can you give a how to on downloading gpx files from Trimble Outdoors? I purchased the Trip Planner Tool but am missing some important step to make it work to get your gpx files.
Thanks, Owen



Jer said...

Hi Owen,

Unfortunately, it use to be free to download GPX files from Trimble Outdoors, but that changed last fall. We've slowly been moving GPX files over to our site so you can download them from here. If a GPX file has been migrated you should see a "Download GPX File" link above the Trimble Outdoors map for a given hike on our site. If there is a particular one you want, and it's missing, just shoot us an email at hikingwithmybrother@gmail.com or post a comment on the hike. I hope that helps!

Jer

Hi there,

I am a 57 year old mountaineer that loves every one of gods creations. I think your site is awesome! Keep up the good work. By the way, if you have not done Mt Pugh yet, it is one for the books! I have been to the summit twice and it is awe inspiring!

Cheers! Swede :)

Thanks Katie!!

Guys...I enjoy the write-ups and the whole concept. My only wish is that you'd include more of the wildlife that you encounter...including the fish that you spot. Thanks.
