Welcome to Mountains with Megan

a how-to for hikers & world travelers

Hi, I'm Megan. I'm a long-distance hiker, blogger, author, and outdoor professional. I travel all over the world (and sometimes stay home in the USA) in search of mountains and trails. I found my love of hiking on the Appalachian Trail back in 2012 and since then have hiked in the Himalayas, the Andes, and a few countries in Europe.

On this blog, I provide information on hiking and backpacking all over the world. Whether you're a first-timer or a thru-hiker, there's something here for you.
