Welcome to Only Four Miles, the home of beginner to intermediate hikers, campers and outdoor explorers.

Only Four Miles was founded with the principle to provide equipment and advice to hikers, campers and outdoor explorers. We believe that every great transformation begins with a single step and that life is too short to sit on the sidelines. Our story begins with a “short” four mile hike with friends that became an inside joke with those we camped and hiked with. On one of our early camping trips we researched a four mile hike to a lake nearby where we would be camping. As fate would have it, the internet was wrong about the distance and after wandering around for five and a half miles we made the decision to turn back without ever reaching our destination. In the dark. Ever since then, we have jokingly called EVERY hike a “four mile hike” regardless of distance.
