How to use this website
C.C. Hikes is a log of the trails, waterfalls, and roadside attractions I’ve visited in recent years. I chart those places in an interactive map along with descriptions, photos, and driving directions for each site.
I also review backpacking trips of varying lengths and gear that I have personally purchased and tested. If you’re looking for places to explore outside, especially in the southeastern U.S., feel free to look around.
