Since my college days I have had a strong interest in hiking and backpacking. These can be short single-day hikes or much longer multi-day backpacking trips into the back-country.

Along with many friends, I have hiked much of the southern Appalachian Mountains in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. National Parks I have hiked include Chattahoochee National Forest, Nantahala National Forest, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

I have also completed a five-day backpacking trip in Sequoia National Forest in central California.

In addition, I have made short hikes in Florida, Mississippi, Colorado, and New Jersey.

Starting in early 2019 I have been completing hikes from the book 50 Hikes in Central Florida. For each hike, I have written a blog post linked from the main 50 Hikes in Central Florida page.
