New Talks Coming in 2023!

There’s a lot of interest in talks about our National Scenic Trail System and the famous Camino de Santiago in Spain. Watch this space as I begin scheduling talks on these two topics for 2023 and beyond.

Fall 2022

Time: September – November
Location: Continental Divide Trail (New Mexico) and hopefully the North Country Trail heading east from Cincinnati 

Upcoming Hikes

Follow along as Melanie continues to pursue her goal of hiking all 11 National Scenic Trails. Check out her progress by reading her trail journals and the travel articles she writes about her treks. Or maybe see if you can catch her on the trail!

Here is my Fall 2022 plan: 

Continental Divide Trail: Start the Continental Divide by hiking from the southern terminus in New Mexico to somewhere in the Albuquerque region. Goal: About 400 miles (644 km).

North Country Trail. Begin where I left off in spring, just outside of Cincinnati, and head east. Goal: Roughly 200 miles (322 km).
