Welcome to HikeTreks!
I am happiest when hiking! My hiking buddies and I train with day hikes in the mountains of Northern California and in the San Francisco Bay Area. Every year we tackle a 2 to 3 week trek, usually in Europe. While I love to hike, I’m not too crazy about carrying a lot of camping gear, so we stay in mountain huts, B&Bs or small hotels, carrying much lighter packs!
Check out my detailed (but not turn-by-turn) trip writeups. Or, if you are just here for the pics, there is no shortage of Instaworthy scenery, Swiss cows wearing bells and fun people I have met along the way!

The following links provide insights into my planning and training processes.
As you read these blogs, realize that my intention is to give you a flavor of the walk, not a turn by turn narrative.
