Hiking & Travel


I began recording some of my hikes starting in early 2019, and then recorded almost all of my hikes starting in May 2020. This page contains data about all of these recorded hikes, including statistics, plots, and pictures. Similar to the rest of my website, this page is not mobile-optimized.

Source code

The source code for generating these webpages from gpx data is available at https://github.com/sygreer/trailTracker. The maps are made using Leaflet, and also rely on modified versions of Leaflet GPX and EXIF to GeoJSON. On each hike's page, the data are processed in Python primarily using gpxpy and are plotted using Plotly.

Favorite hikes

My favorite hikes in Oregon are probably in the Wallowa Mountains, with recorded hikes of a one-night backpacking trip to Ice Lake and Matterhorn and a three-night backpacking trip to Lakes Basin, with day trips to Eagle Cap and Glacier Lake. Closer to Eugene, OR, I especially enjoyed Jefferson Park, Tam McArthur Rim to Broken Top, Canyon Creek Meadows, Chambers Lakes, Strawberry Lakes, and the famous McKenzie River Trail.



I made a few maps for the backpacking trips which required more planning using Caltopo, which are available for download here.
