Where is this 2200 acre clothing optional site? That sounds great! Certainly sounds worthy of checking out!I would like to know where this is, myself.

I think what he is referring to is the Orient Land Trust (aka Valley View Hot Springs) located in Colorado's San Lus Valley. The valley is located in south central Colorado near the town of Alamosa. You can Google it for the website address and I believe there is a locations page on TN.

A friend and I were hiking nude along Lower Bear Creek in the San Gabriel Mountains a few years ago.
About an hour into the hike we came across two forest rangers going in the opposite direction.
As we passed each other they just smiled and said "Watch out for the poison oak!"

Ive hiked nude in the Las Padres National Forest many times on several different trails and gated roads. Although I typically choose times and locations to avoid other hikers and mountain bikers, I have had several encounters over the years. Only one of those was less than pleasant and that was two women who kept their eyes on the trail without looking up. Most people would simply smile or make a comment like: thats one way to keep cool.

I have also hiked nude on BLM lands in Central Oregon, once covering 12 miles and only seeing one other person. Evening hikes in the high desert as the temperatures drop from the days highs are often good times to go. Be careful to time your hike to avoid being caught out in the dark and you will have a peaceful hike and miss the scorching daytime temperatures.

RE:Caught Hiking Nude

I've done a lot of nude hiking and most of it hasn't included any interaction with persons of the clothed type. On the few occasions when it has included them it has been non-confrontational. As long as I'm not swinging freely in the sun when it occurs I try not to let that immediate gut reaction of, "Oh shit they're going to see I'm showing," get me to pulling my shirttail down to hide my nether region, though the feeling still comes up. Now that I'm a full time nudist and moved away from my regular natural hiking trails I am starting to feel like that knee-jerky reaction is beginning to subside in my psyche, thankfully.

As long as you aren't sprouting an erection or doing something with your genitals when you walk up on other people who are unlike you, in full vesture, you should find them to be cordial and respectful. Families are especially friendly on the trails in my experience, but I am always careful to have something to pull in front of my front just in case because you can never know when they may be that over-protective parent who acts appalled if they see their little ones see your block&tackle and cause problems for you. That hasn't ever happened to me. I have a couple of specific, long-tailed shirts I'd wear, and usually leaving only the bottom couple of buttons buttoned so I have full wind between by legs, and that special feeling of being free downstairs is one of life's pleasures. I have had couples who've turned around to check me out, to get a look at what's showing after we've passed, and my special shirts don't all cover that part so well, depending on how ridden up the shirt has gotten from the movement of hiking. By then the offending ass is leaving their sight and I've not once had anyone confront me. Those shirts will be stripped off first thing once I'm at my perch up in the mountains where I'd suntan nude, letting my skin get full exposure where I'm pretty sure no one will be coming along. If you are stationary and not flaunting your stuff, I have found most everyone will not bother you.

What nude hiking offers me is a way of getting to my solitary place where I can write, tan nude, and commune with the greatness of nature all around me, joining in the celebration of being a part of the natural world, and just the way I was brought into it.

Have been hiking nude for many years and have had several encounters with textiles. Most were friendly, I normally have my hiking kilt. in my hand to cover those parts that may be affective to some. People are generally ok with this old guy. Only one, said "OH Really", another event. park rangers drove up from behind a friend and me, both naked. saying " someone else might see guys, please keep your shorts on. .
Most parks or beaches, I tend to find a secluded sections to be nude. No real problem. Just be prepared to cover-up if needed. If people are there before you, ask if they are ok with clothes optional sunbathing.

I went to the local national park a while back. It is the only local place to go free hiking. I met a textile m-f couple who were headed back to the parking area. We exchanged pleasantries. On my way back out, I met a f-f couple. They didn't speak. They did keep looking back at me. There is another place where it is a camping area. There is a paved road. Sometimes I stay on it. It is almost a mile around the circle. There have been several pass by and just smile and wave as they go by. No one has seemed put out or complained. Now that it is spring, I plan to go as often as possible.

RE:Caught Hiking Nude

hiking nude is one of a must activity while nude, but sometimes it's doesn't go as plan.

for me, when people seeing me hiking nude they will ask like what do you doing? why you are naked? or so..
and yeah, i need to explain, and that's i like naked outside much..

thanks god so far i have no problem with that, although some people can be misunderstanding too..

Some years ago in Glacier Park, I was hiking on a trail and came to an alpine lake. Across the lake were some people on the shore nude. I took off my clothes and was going to continue when a group came along of mostly kids. I got dressed again and went back, as there was a warning for grizzly bears and too many people for me. I didn't know at the time that nudity is allowed in national parks, oh well maybe next time.

I was visiting Eureka California and decided to find a nice stretch of beach to hike. Coming from the puritan Midwest, I wasn't considering naked hiking. Then a man and his dog walk by, both naked without a concern in the world.
Is this a nude beach? I asked.
If you want it to be, he replied.
Off came the clothes in a heartbeat.
I for one love being naked, but I just want to enjoy it and not give any thought of being caught by anything other than insects and UV rays.
