Jen’s Colorado Trail Thru-Hike.
5 weeks, 486 miles.
July/ August 2022.
I chose to register my thru-hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
Would you consider making a donation, leaving a message, or sharing this page?
Being a long time sufferer of anxiety/ depression and seeing the positive impact backpacking has had on my mental health, I would like to give back. For every dollar donated up to the 2k goal, I will match. I appreciate you, friends. 🙂🌲⛰️🚶♀️
