    My name is Saroj and I am a co-founder of Sidewalk (, a magazine to help people discover and plan amazing hiking adventures.

You can read our recently published hiking trips at If you are interested in sharing your Denali National Park and other backpacking trips with our readers, we would be delighted to work with you.

    We feel that writing about your hiking trips is fun and enjoyable. But we know it takes time to write in a way that adds value to other hikers. We do support the effort of our writers by paying them to produce quality content. If this sounds interesting, please email us at and we will be happy to continue the conversation further.

    Happy Hiking!

  2. I am planning a trip to the Wind River Range in August 2019. What maps are you using and where can I get them? I have seen a couple on Amazon. I looked for some NatGeo maps can not find any. Please email me back with info.

    God Bless,

  3. Jerry,

    We primarily used Andrew Skurka’s annotated maps from his Wind River Range Trail guide. He used the USGS maps (7.5 Quad??) and then added waypoints and annotations. We printed these files and laminated them.

    If you aren’t doing the high route the best maps I’ve seen are from Beartooth publishing. These are very similar to NatGeo with the same type of paper and very high quality. They have a map for the full Wind River Range, then separate maps for the north and south range. All of our hike was in the north range, so that’s the only map we have purchased.

    Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great trip!

    Josh, The Mayor of the Trail
