This site, and hiking forum, is dedicated to "extreme" day hikes that are rigorous, exciting, unique, with interesting sights and terrain. The Day Hiker philosophy is a minimalist approach to clothing, food, and equipment so the hiker can:

Go early, go light, go fast, go far, go high, and achieve a personal best in one day, returning to a hot shower, a gourmet meal, a fine wine, and a comfortable bed.
