Following in the footsteps of a Northern California hiker who has been blazing his own trail for decades.

Submitter Statement

Several years ago after arriving in Northern California, I joined Tom's hiking group. I found his knowledge of the landscape and the hiking hidden gems an exciting way to explore nature. Tom is a true maverick before mavericks were cool. I found his independent spirit, resilience and ability to bring people together so inspiring that I reached out to ask him if I could tell his story. So honored he agreed.
