This is a list of trip reports for various hikes and excursions that I’ve been on. Most of my hikes are in the Sierra Nevada, so they are loosely organized by increasing geographic region, and then by date. I’ve also rated each trip based on my experiences and whether I’d do them again.

As a general disclaimer, personal tastes and rapidly-changing conditions means that much of what is written here is highly subjective and possibly inaccurate, so you are encouraged to do your own research and know your own abilities. That being said, I hope the information here helps you or inspires you to make your own trips of a lifetime!

Rating System

★★★★★: One of the best trips of a lifetime.
★★★★: Trip is worth doing, even multiple times.
★★★: Trip is worth doing and going out of your way to do it.
★★: Trip is worth doing, but don’t go out of your way to do it.
★: Trip is not worth doing.
