Hey all! My name is Sydney and I'm a social media intern for The Trek! I live in the Pacific Northwest with my boyfriend and 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! I did the Timberline Trail, which is only 42 miles but overlaps with the PCT for 7 miles in 2019, and hope to do the Wonderland Trail this summer.
