60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks!

In the Bay Area we like to joke that the first day of summer is Labor Day. That's when the tourist crowds start to fade, the weather is simply incredible, and golden light settles over our scenic landscapes. It's the perfect time of year to hike, for beginners and experts alike.

In that spirit, I'm starting a new fitness and hiking campaign: 60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks. Each week I'll select a hike from my book -- one that I think is ideal for the season (and I'll even include an alternate choice from my website). Hike it, then post your comments here. Follow in my bootsteps and in 60 weeks you will be a hiking superstar. It's a great way to get more exercise while exploring the Bay Area's trails.

Who's in?

Sounds like a great idea. I'm in rehab for some pain right now, but am dying to get back into shape for hiking. Plus I'm busy on many weekends. BUT given all that, I'd be delighted to use your posts as inspiration and try to get out and do *something* along those lines. Can hardly wait to see what you post!

60 hikes in 60 miles in 60 weeks! That's right, on a similar note to what you did for The P90X workout regime, we've been putting together an ambitious itinerary of hiking trails and exploring routes. Here you check this concrete driveways west auckland and get more new ways for the latest construction. It's a little bit different from your usual fitness routine as we are focusing more on the natural landscape than our own bodies.
