Talking Maine Hiking with Triple Crown Hiker Elysha Dyer on Mainely Matters Podcast

I really enjoyed the opportunity to chat up Maine hiking destinations and long-distance hiking with fellow trail enthusiast Elysha Dyer and host of the Mainely Matters podcast, Brian Bickford.

With over 80 land trusts, 600,000 acres of public reserved land, scores of state and private parks, and Acadia National Park, Maine has trails for enthusiasts of all ability levels. We discuss where to find them and share a few tips for enjoying them, too!

Jeffrey H Ryan is an author, adventurer, photographer and historian. He has written several books about his outdoor exploits, his fascination with hiking trails and the people and places found just off the beaten path. His debut book, Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-year hike on America's trail was hailed by the former Executive Editor of National Geographic as "a classic of nature and travel writing" and set off a national tour (in a 1985 VW camper, no less). His books are known for weaving a deep appreciation for history into walks across contemporary landscapes that give readers the feeling they are hiking right alongside. When Jeff isn't trekking, chasing down a great story or spinning yarns from his keyboard, he enjoys sharing his adventures with audiences who love the outdoors. He spends much of his time in his beloved native state of Maine.
