Contact me using the box below if you would like a nearby hiker for safety. See my priority lists and my ascents. I am also interested in peaks in GA State Parks such as Black Rock Mountain.

While it is always good to study online maps, trip reports, GPS/GPX tracks, etc., before heading out, recent hikes have taught me to pay closer attention to maps posted at trail heads as they can be more precise (Red Mountain CO) and more accurate and up to date (Johns Mountain GA).
