Hi and welcome! I’m Alexa, former New York City dweller turned thru-hiker. I’m passionate about bringing the outdoors to inner cities. I explore barriers to entry and diversity in the outdoors while I aspire to earn the Triple Crown, hiking all three U.S. long-distance trails, Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Continental Divide Trail.
The Concrete Hiker is where I share my love for all things outdoors. Whether you’re planning a day hike or long distance thru-hike, or if you live in a city or the mountains, I hope to share my personal experiences and give you the tools to be successful and get outside.
