Phil Phelan's record setting thru-hike of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive - 2015

Phil Phelan along the Florida Trail - 2015

 Phil Phelan's Hiking Guides are a series of guidebooks that simplifies the entire way trail-data is presented, while delivering expert knowledge at a beginner's pace.


 My series includes an innovative combination of comprehensive localized trail maps, simplistic turn-by-turn directions and recommendations, quick answers to need-to-know facts, and has the only fact-based trail-difficulty rating system in existence.


  Throughout the books, the transfer of knowledge is with an understanding that the reader is fatigued and under a certain amount of stress related to physical exertion. With that said, the comprehensive and in-depth reports are continuously presented in an easily absorbed fashion.


  As far as positive trail reflection, I, personally, map and film every trail in its entirety, then use that information to accurately create each new book from scratch.


  My goal is to adequately aid every hiker - young or wise / novice or expert - in having the most productive outdoor experience imaginable.
