Hi, I’m Melissa!

I’m here to help you gain the knowledge you need to hike with confidence.

My love for the outdoors really started when I was just a girl. My dad loved hiking and rock climbing and we had a lot of fun going on outdoor adventures. As I raised my own kids, my love for hiking and all things outdoorsy grew. I’m excited to share my love for the outdoors with you. I created Hiker Jane to provide women with the right knowledge so they can hike safely and with confidence.
