I’m Lauren, a mum of one and a lover of the outdoors. I enjoy walking, camping and exploring the many amazing outdoor spaces that Britain has to offer. I started this blog to document our adventures-both big and small-and hopefully to pass on some tips and advice to help others. Put simply, the ethos behind The Helpful Hiker is that it’s easy for anyone and everyone to enjoy the outdoors. You don’t need to spend a lot of money and you don’t need lots of expensive equipment.
