Henri de la Vega

Howdy, I'm Henri, trail name Rooster. I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail(almost all of it... damn fires), Continental Divide Trail and will be setting out this winter to attempt a thru-hike of the Florida tail. When I'm not out taking long walks in the woods I'm near home taking short ones, guiding folks around the Hudson Valley and Catskills of New York state and working as a horticulturist. I hope you enjoy following my adventure, check out my instagram for live updates and if you'd like to hear my ramblings from the CDT check out the season 3 of The Trek's Trail Correspondents Podcast or episode #119 on Backpacker radio!


The Florida Trail

The Florida Trail

mosquitos, snakes, trudging waist deep through swamps, alligators, road walks, ticks, and a general lack of views. Sounds awesome, right?!
