Getting Started

Climb and Hike in the Garden of the Gods

Colorado / Palmer Trail, Colorado Springs

If you are new to the area a stop by the visitor center can helpful to get a map of the trails and roads in the area as well as obtaining a climbing permit (one is needed to climb and is free).

Backpack to the Natural Bridge

Arkansas / Hurricane Creek Trailhead (unofficial)

After you drive across the one-lane bridge and take the dirt road immediately after it, follow that dirt road until it begins to bend to the left.

Hiking Up Oregon's Saddle Mountain

Oregon / Saddle Mountain Trail

Saddle Mountain is a pretty stellar spot if you are looking for a beginner/intermediate hike with incredible views close to Portland. The trail is a 5.

Hike to Big Cottonwood Canyon's Hidden Falls

Utah / Big Cottonwood Canyon

Hidden Falls is a beautiful little waterfall with minimal crowds. When I say minimal, I mean I've only seen another person there 1 of the 5 or 6 times that I have been. Take it in. Stay a while.

Explore Beavertail State Park

Rhode Island / Beavertail State Park

Rhode Island isn't exactly on everyone's map, I've even met strangers in other parts of the U.S. who have no idea where the tiniest state in the country is.

Hike and Rock Climb at Saddle Peak

Los Angeles / Saddle Peak Trailhead Parking

This is one of my favorite hikes in the Los Angeles area. Super easy, yet beautiful and a perfect place to get away from the city. Parking for the trailhead is where the three roads intersect.
