About Me

Hailstorm Hiking Adventures was created in 2023 by Christy Millek after she thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2022. Christy’s trail name is ‘Hailstorm. Christy was overwhelmed with the support of the local community regarding her hike and one phrase always stuck out: ‘I could never do that’. While an entire Appalachian Trail thru-hike is not for everyone, backpacking can be. Helping others feel confident in the outdoors is what inspired Hailstorm Hiking Adventures. Christy has her Wilderness First Responder certificate from SOLO and is also CPR certified.
