While Modern Hiker does make enough money to keep the lights on, we simply could not exist without the kind donations and support of our readers.

In 2015, hundreds of our supporters generously donated funds to help us build this new web site. Today, our supporters are helping us add more trails and more writers, cover more outdoor stories that other media outlets can’t or won’t devote space to, and inspire more people to get outside.

If you’ve found Modern Hiker a valuable resource, please consider a one-time or recurring donation via the PayPal buttons on the right. Every cent counts — even if you can skip a cup of coffee once a week, we’d greatly appreciate it.

Below are some of the more than 450 generous donors who contributed to our crowdfunding campaign, which provided the majority of the funds to create this updated version of the web site. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every one of them, and this site would absolutely not be possible without their help – including those who chose to remain anonymous while doing so.
