Name: Tara Schatz
Hometown: Bennington, VT
Where I’ve Been: I’ve section-hiked the AT—though not all at once, hiked everywhere I could during a cross-country road trip from Vermont to Washington, and climbed and hiked many of the highest peaks in VT., NH., and NY.
Where to Next: Exploring the trails and peaks near my home, spending time with family, and raising puppies for Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Why I Hike: I love leaving my responsibilities behind and heading out on an adventure.
