)-- Just in time for the Christmas shopping season, HikingintheSmokys.com announces the expansion of its hiking gear and apparel selection today.
In addition to several new products handpicked by hiking experts, HikingintheSmokys.com has also increased its brand selection for items such as trekking poles, wicking shirts, fleece jackets, hiking boots, daypacks, rain gear, and GPS Units.
The store continues to offer quality gear and apparel from some of the best outdoor brands, including; Columbia Sportswear, Kelty, Garmin, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, Camelbak and North Face. The store also specializes in books and DVDs for hikers and visitors of the Smoky Mountains.
The store is unique because it focuses on the needs of the day hiker. Shoppers don’t have to sort through backpacking and camping equipment in order to find the gear they need for their day hikes.
No need to burn gas or fight traffic at the malls either. Online shoppers enjoy the convenience of shopping for books, gear and apparel from home or work.
HikingintheSmokys.com offers free hiking information on more than 70 trails in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including trail descriptions, key features, pictures, videos, maps, elevation profiles, and more. Additionally, the site is organized to make it easier for hikers to compare and choose trails that best suit their hiking preferences. Before the launch of HikingintheSmokys.com, hikers had difficulty finding web-based trail information for the Smoky Mountains. Most existing sites list only 10 or 15 of the most popular trails, and provide only limited information without regard to individual hikers’ skill level or preferences.
