We shouldn't have to write this stuff, but people are stupid, so here goes…

Bill's Hikes is run by amateurs, and it's not meant to give legal, medical or financial advice or anything that is like a contract. Prices on reviews are estimates for your information, and do not reflect the actual market or vendor's pricing.

Trail maps and guides may be inaccurate and are only to give you ideas on where to hike. It is your responsibility to make sure that you can handle the woods on your own and that you know where you're going, where you are, and where you came from.

The woods and mountains can be a dangerous place, and very bad things can happen. While we hope this site gives you ideas, it's always best to consult multiple sources. In cases of health questions, ask your doctor, and for maps, check multiple resources./p>

In short, don't take our word for anything if you're the kind of person who will sue us if you get into trouble! We are individuals, not a company, and we are only detailing our own experience. We're not telling you what to do.

While we're happy to answer emails and post our experiences, the site is just that—a journal of our experiences. It's not in any way, shape or form the gospel truth and final word on anything.

That said, get outside and have fun!
