My name is Emily (aka Cobweb Rose), and I am an aspiring Appalachian Trail Thru Hiker with the Class of 2023. I start NoBo in mid-March, and I can’t wait to share my adventures with you! I have a small teddy bear dog named Riley who joins me for day hikes, and I live near Asheville, NC. My night job is as a travel ICU nurse, and I love exploring new places. Favorite national park: Acadia. Favorite hike: the Beehive in Acadia. Favorite Food: Sushi! Favorite movie: The Hunt for Red October or Zootopia (it’s a toss up). Fun fact: I’m a huge Harry Potter nerd (Go Gryffindor!). Happy trails, all!! Follow my adventures in video form at https://youtube.com/@cobwebroseonthetrail2447
