Kira Foxfeet Cotter

Yo yo yiggity yo! While in most circles I go by Kira, on trail and in the woods I’m known as Foxfeet. A PA native with a desire to explore and uproot, 2015 saw me attempting a NOBO thru-hike of the AT....That thru-hike turned flip-flop turned long-ass section hike was my first experience with solo camping/backpacking, and though I left the trail, it never left me. Since moving to Maine in fall of 2015, I’ve remained close to the AT, living and working in trail towns (Rangeley/Stratton) and at Sugarloaf. Having found an avid backpacker, gear junkie, and lover of the outdoors in my boyfriend, Garrett, we’ve decided that 2019 is the year for us to attempt a thru-hike together. As we also share an obsessive love of mac n’ cheese, I’m sure we’ll be fine. Follow us on our non-traditional SOBO-NOBO flip-flop of the AT, coming to readers like you mid-April 2019!
