Lauren de la Vega

My trail name is Woodchuck and will remain Woodchuck because it's tattooed on the bicep of a man in Damascus. I hiked the AT in 2016 (southbound), the PCT in 2017 (flip) and will be hiking southbound on the CDT this year. I'm a licensed hiking and camping guide in New York state, and spend most of my weekends taking people hiking and camping in the Catskills and Hudson Valley regions of New York. I have a Master's in Creative Arts Therapy Counseling, and I'm passionate about combining my training in art therapy with nature connection.
