Hi I'm Dave Miller - Founder and Admin of MyHikes. MyHikes is my own personal hiking journal that I work on for fun by tracking, exploring, writing about trails, nature, and history, and writing code / building software that helps people. All hikes added and published on this account were hiked and written by me. I'm an avid hiker and backpacker with a goal to document my adventures by contributing to MyHikes over the course of my life. I primarily focus on mapping local trails and places that most people don't care to explore. I'm a Pennsylvania Hiker Award recipient (2020) for hiking 500 miles of Pennsylvania's trails (977+ miles hiked in PA as of June 2022). For my day job I'm a senior software engineer at Salesforce working on Trailhead.com - all opinions are mine and not those of my employer.
Trail tracking, writing about trails and nature, astrophotography (Milky Way and deep space objects), having a beard / not having a beard, exploring the woods with my wife Nina and my dog Jax, coding software.
Favorite Hiking Locations
Pine Creek Gorge (Pennsylvania Grand Canyon / my backyard), Dolly Sods Wilderness (WV), Allegheny National Forest (PA), Mt. Alander (MA), Bourn Pond (VT), Haleakala National Park (HI), Quabbin Reservoir (MA)
