The Trek Bloggers
The following awesome people are the official bloggers of the The Trek. In other words, they’re the renegade trail-folk who will be blogging their thru-hikes right here on theTrek.co. Their job is to be adventurous and share their experiences in vivid detail. Our job is to live vicariously and envy their existence.

From Yorkshire in the UK. I like to spend my time outdoors hiking, cycle touring and running. I work on an organic farm growing veg and recently got into foraging. I am a qualified sports massage therapist, a useful skill on trail!
Three things about me: I love all things outdoors and trails. I live in close proximity to the AT. If I were an animal, I'd be a honey badger.
My name is Jenn. Or Zebra. I like to walk. And eat. Thus... thru-hiking. I hiked the PCT NOBO in 2017 and SOBO in 2018. In 2020 I hiked the Tahoe Rim Trail, the Colorado Trail, and the Arizona Trail, and in 2021 I hiked the AT SOBO.
Hey, I'm Margaret and I'm 23 years old, and I'm sick of punching someone else's clock. I've decided to quit my job and pursue dreams of hiking the country, and maybe eventually living and working from a car so I can spend more time with my dog. I'm a little bit impulsive, I'm very determined, and I want to get the most out of life. I'm an avid reader, gamer, and eater. Mostly, I just want to live a life worth telling stories about; where I don't dread going to work, make the world a little bit better than I found it, and hopefully inspire some others to follow their dreams too.
Writer, reader, blogger, hiker, explorer, movie critic, poet... Attempting to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 2020.
Four fun facts about me: When I was in 3rd grade, I had 2 pet cockroaches. My favorite color is seafoam at sunset. My favorite smell is freshly brewed coffee. I've been exclusively eating plants for the last 5 years and plan to keep being my herbivorous self on my NOBO thruhike of the Pacific Crest Trail this year! My passion for the outdoors has carried me on adventures across the globe and has most recently carried me to the great Pacific Northwest, where I now live. I'll be returning to my home state of California to begin my thruhike hike in May!
Hello there beautiful people! My name is Petri (no trail name yet) and I'm hiking the PCT Nobo in april 2022. I'm from The Netherlands where I work as a yoga teacher and massage therapist. Favorite quote: 'I want to see mountains again Gandalf, Mountains!'. I wiggle my tail a lot when I'm excited. Follow along on my very first thru-hike!
Hi my name is Thomas, I am a professional photographer, environmental conservationist, and devoted optimist. Since 2017 my dream has been to complete the PCT, and have spent time on the trail taking portraits of hikers. My hope is to spread optimism on trail and to promote environmental conservation with my photography. My start date is March 5, 2022, and I'll be spending most of my time on trail with my trekking pole in hand, my camera in the other.
I'm a class of 2020 Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, aspiring class of '21 Mid State Trail thru-hiker, and a freelance writer. Oh, and sometimes I do my homework, cause I'm in college too, I guess. If you're nice to me, I'll make you bread.
