Hey all! My name is Sydney and I've been helping out with The Trek's social media for a little over a year now! I spent the past four years in the Pacific Northwest hiking and backpacking with my dog, Alpine. I fell in love with everything about hiking after exploring the Cascade mountains. Somehow I came across the community and culture surrounding the long distance trails, and immediately knew I wanted to be part of it. I haven't hiked a long trail yet, but plan on doing the PCT in 2021!
