My name is Joe (he/him) - but you might know be as Mr. Overhill. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in 2016, I thru hiked the PCT. Since then I have hiked numerous long trails, including the AT, AZT, Tahoe Rim Trail, Wonderland, and more. In my passion to live adventurously, and get others to live adventurously as well, I've dedicated myself to a career in Adventure Travel. Whether guiding travelers up Half Dome, or designing custom itineraries in North America, I am at my best when empowering others to get outside. My professional and recreational pursuits are intended to help bring awareness to the need to preserve wild places and our environment for generations to come.
