I'm Kate "Big Catt", a backpacker, runner, and writer. If the trail keeps going, I want to see what's next. That's what led me to hike southbound on the Appalachian Trail in 2022. I currently enjoy working for a local running store in Western New York and writing about outdoor recreation. Other adventures include the Foothills Trail, Niagara Falls to Pennsylvania along the Fingerlakes Trail, and the Northville-Placid Trail.
