Pathfinder's Long Distance Hikes


Picture taken by Boretide

Hi, I'm Pathfinder!  In 2016, I hiked the PCT and finished wanting more. Trying to step up my hiking game, I set off for a Calendar Year Triple Crown after a warm up exploration of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments.  Instead, I finished with a Single Year Triple Crown still wanting more.  Here is the story of my Single Year Triple Crown called "It's Not About Me."

Covid required a change in plans, so I took off on a route called the Escalante Overland Route with a friend.


My next plan is to hike quite a few different trails and routes, some I will alter or make up completely for over 6,000 miles.  It will be entirely in the region of the US I fell in love with, the West which I define as Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean.  As such, I'm calling my Love the West hike.  This website is one way you can follow my progress and see exactly what I will do.

More stuff will be posted on this website before my next adventure.  There are several ways to follow.  First there is this website.  If you want to know when the website is updated subscribe here:

Mostly, I will make my updates on Instagram as that is the easiest way for me to provide updates.  I have also created a Facebook Page for anyone who wants to follow my hikes.
