Trail Ambassador Dan Bortz

In an attempt to find friends to hike with, Dan started the Berks-Lehigh Hiking and Backpacking Meetup, which has blossomed to almost 500 members. Most of Dan’s hiking experience comes from within Pennsylvania. He hikes his local section of the AT a lot, and also enjoys many of PA’s other footpaths, such as the West Rim Trail, the Loyalsock Trail, and the Allegheny Front Trail.
