This blog contains my personal account of the trails I hike and as such the details and subtleties of each hike may be omitted. Usually I have assigned trail ratings to hikes, these are subjective. Please refer to the trail grade definitions post for more information. I usually include a GPX and KML file for any given hike – please feel free to use them.
