CHR Mission Statement
In June 2020 I was stuck at home and bored like everyone else. A friend invited me to a hike a mountain that was rated ”easy” but we did not agree. I stated that I wished there was someone giving more realistic reviews of the trails in Maine. My friend said, why don’t you start a Instagram? And Chubby Hiker Reviews was born.
Chubby Hiker Reviews is a social media account run by Paige Emerson where she posts hikes and trail reviews from the perspective of someone who is not the typical body type of a hiker.
Paige Emerson is a 28 year old Maine native. She works as a social worker and reviews trails as a plus sized hiker in her spare time. Paige also recently became a registered Maine Guide and plans to offer guided hikes to plus sized hikers.
