#118 | Jonathan Zaherek SENDS IT in the Adirondacks during All Seasons

July 6th, 2021

Jonathan Zaherek is back on the show to talk about getting sendy in the Adirondacks. Whether it's backcountry skiing, or trail running (even on the uphills) Jonathan never holds back as he continues his quest to basically be the biggest Adirondack Hiking Nerd of all time. A special thanks to Nick Groves for popping into the conversation for a few minutes to speak about his quest to hike every mountain in the Adirondack Park that has a trail to the summit.

#101 | How to Solve the Adirondack’s Overuse Problem with James Appleton

January 5th, 2021

James Appleton, host of The 46 of 46 Podcast comes on for his second Trail Tales episode. We spent most of this episode talking about the 'overuse' issue in the Adirondack High Peaks....although calling it such is a massive simplification. James lives in the Adirondack Park, and thus has some unique and valuable views on the subject. Even if you do not hike in the Adirondacks, I think there is a lot to learn in this episode, especially as public hiking trails have started to see an increase in traffic over the years.

#87 | Sintax77 on hiking the DEVIL’S PATH in the Catskills

September 9th, 2020

Sintax77 joins me again to talk about our hike of the Devil's Path in the Catskill mountains of New York. We did this hike in mid-August of 2020... and it absolutely kicked my butt. We were successful but I certainly underestimated the trail, so it was a humbling experience! In this episode we cover all the logistics of hiking Devil's Path, and much more!

#86 | Hiking the Vermont Long Trail as a first Thru Hike

August 18th, 2020

My good friend Kayla joins the show this week to talk all about her FIRST THRU HIKE EVER in which she completed MY FAVORITE TRAIL EVER i.e the Vermont Long Trail! The Long Trail is tough, and hiking it in a group of 4 is even tougher, so I think it's awesome that she was able to crush it! We talk about group hiking, some of her favorite spots on the trail, and at the end of the episode she shares a story of a bear encounter in the Adirondacks.

#49 | White Mountains Redlining; Beyond the White Mountain 4000 Footers with Redline Guiding’s Mike Cherim

October 22nd, 2019

Redline Guiding's owner and founder Mike Cherim joins the show this week to talk all about the White Mountains of New Hampshire! Mike is an experienced hiker who has completed many notable accomplishments. From thru-hiking the Long Trail to Redlining the White Mountains, Mike has many miles under his belt, and we had plenty to talk about. We discussed what White Mountain Redlining is, how there is much more to the White Mountains than just the 4000-footers, and how he was able to take his passion of hiking and turn it into a successful business by starting Redline Guiding. Be sure to check out their website, Facebook, and Instagram.

#48 | A Single Year Grid of the South Beyond 6000; Peak-Bagging with Caet Cash

October 15th, 2019

Thru-hiker and peak-bagger Caet Cash has completed the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Adirondack 46, and much much more. She joins the show this week to discuss her current hiking project; tackling the South Beyond 6000 Single Year Grid. If successful, Caet will be the first hiker in history to have completed the South Beyond 6000 in a Single Year Grid. We talk all about what inspired this crazy project, how she lives the 'van life' in order to make the hiking logistics easier, and a comparison between thru-hiking and peak-bagging. The South Beyond 6000 is not as popular as famous lists like the White Mountain 4000-footers or the Adirondack 46, so hopefully this episode will inspire some folks to get outside in the Southeast!

#43 | Thru-Hiking the PCT and Starting the Byland Podcast with Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hiker Emory Wanger

September 3rd, 2019

Emory Wanger, who hosts the Byland Podcast, joins the show this week to talk about thru hiking the PCT, backpack-hunting, and of course... podcasting! We jumped all around in this one, and it was almost therapeutic for me to discuss the behind the scenes details of starting and maintaining a podcast within the hiking/backpacking/thru hiking world that we both exist in. Of course, it was also great to hear about thru-hiking the PCT, and everything else Emory had to say! If you like Trail Tales, you will for sure like Byland, so go check it out at https://byland.co/podcast
