I'm Dan, the outdoor adventurer behind Great American Hikes.  Other than our dogs, my passions are hiking, backpacking, rock climbing and any travel that connects me with the outdoors.  I'm also a bit of a history dork.

Our mission is to share our years of experience exploring the outdoors in hopes of making your next adventure a more informed, well-planned, and awesome experience!


  Check out Adventures for road trip ideas or Awesome Places & Hidden Gems to discover some of our favorite outdoor places.  Every hike, climb, cliff jump, and everything in between we've done ourselves. 


New adventures, hidden gems, travel tips, and more delivered quarterly
