Hand-Held & Hike-Inspired

Inspired by Shelly Hail's thru-hiking odyssey on the Appalachian Trail, this generously sized mug sports a mountain range motif and words that invoke the ups and downs of the journey. Crafted by Hail and fellow potter Chris Hudson, it also features the A.T. symbol on the back, hiking boot tracks inside, and a lug sole-like texture on the bottom for a true trekker's tribute. It makes a great gift for anyone who enjoys campfire coffee or the allure of the trail less traveled. Handmade in La Motte, Vermont.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Hiker's Journey Mug:

    My fiance recently got into drinking hot tea at work, but only had 1 mug which was a little small and would sometimes boil over in the microwave. He is also an avid mountain biker. Even tho this mug is labeled "Hiker" it could be for anyone who loves being outdoors. I bought this as a Valentine's Day present and he loves it. It's large and heats the water evenly when he microwaves it. Plus he loves the design on the outside and the bottom has an extra layer so it doesn't heat up the surface underneath it too bad. All in all, an excellent mug and great purchase.

      My husband love it. We hiked through portions of the Appalachian trail and this was a great reminder of that time.

      I had this sent to her (I'm in Indiana, she's in Virginia) and she let me know that she loved it! She has hiked over 1/2 of the Appalachian Trail so far and I thought it was the perfect gift.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Hiker's Journey Mug:

          I like everything about this mug except it's size. It's really too large for one cup of hot coffee, too bulky for packing on weekend outings, too heavy for 10-year-old grandson to use comfortably. Really more like a soup mug when winter rolls around. But it is as advertized in every other way - attractive, dishwasher friendly, durable.
