Do you enjoy hiking or backpacking or both?

Both. I day hike whenever I can, however, enjoy a nice backpacking challenge. Often you will see me carrying a 40 lb pack on my day hikes, just to stay in shape!

What do you enjoy most about hiking?

Being outdoors, away from everything. I am into backpacking with my son and daughter. They are really enjoying being outside, and I am enjoying the time with them.

Where are your favorite areas for hiking in the Dayton area?

Twin Creek, Germantown and Sugarcreek MetroParks, Glen Helen and John Bryan also.

Where are your favorite areas for hiking outside of the Dayton area?

Smoky Mountains, TN/NC, Western NC, Appalachian Trail, Red River Gorge, Hocking Hills, Damascus, VA and Grayson Highlands - Mt Rogers Rec Area.

How did you hear about Dayton Hikers?

Found them online

Dayton Hikers is a great bunch of folks. I have not met anyone I do not like, and everyone seems to want to go out of their way to help everyone else out. A great bunch of hikers here!
