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 (852+ miles hiked in PA as of December 2021). 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), Dolly Sods Wilderness (WV), Allegheny National Forest (PA), Mt. Alander (MA), Bourn Pond (VT), Haleakala National Park (HI)
