I’m Cory, and as you can probably tell, I really like hiking. I like it so much that I started this blog to share my experiences. Most weekends you’ll find me out on the trails around my home in Vacaville, California. I’m a fourth generation Bay Arean and Californian and feel blessed to have grown up and live in an area with such stunning natural beauty. My goal is to highlight the best hikes that Northern California has to offer by hiking them myself and sharing my experiences. I hope to inspire others to get out and explore the region that they live in, as well as offering practical information and tips to those looking for a good hike in NorCal. I’d love to interact with any of my readers! Comment on a post, shoot me a message, or follow me on Instagram (@cmanofmaps). I often post pictures from my hikes there. In the future I also hope to include more on gear advice, as well as other hiking, camping, and outdoors topics.
