Hi I'm Dave Miller - Founder and Admin of MyHikes. I work on MyHikes for fun -- tracking, exploring, writing about trails, nature, and history, and writing code. 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 work as a Senior Software Engineer for Salesforce on Trailhead (all opinions are my own).
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.
