About jordansummers

jordansummers Jordan has had more fun sleeping on rock, snow, and dirt than any one person should be allowed. From guiding expeditions in Sequoia- Kings Canyon NP with llamas to thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, adventure has never seemed to wane for Summers in the Sierra. From 2007 until 2009, Jordan hiked approximately 1,300 miles to research and write Five Star Trails around Lake Tahoe, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles – Sacramento, and Easy Hikes Close to Home – Sacramento (Menasha Ridge Press). Jordan retraced each of the 60 Hikes for it’s 2nd edition in 2011 and he’s currently hiking all of the Five Star Trails around Lake Tahoe for its 2nd edition as well. Jordan is a graduate of the NOLS Wilderness Outdoor Educator program, a Leave No Trace Trainer, and a NOLS-WMI certified Wilderness First Responder. Jordan’s aim is to help wilderness enthusiasts to get out there, to have a great time there, to leave no trace there, and to come home safely from there.
