L.A.’s Ups and Downs: Liz Thomas Hikes Over 300 Stairways in Five Days
Liz Thomas has hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Coast Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail (AKA the Triple Crown of long distance hiking). Most recently, the Colorado resident tackled the urban stairways of the greater Los Angeles area. This might seem like a relatively tame feat for someone accustomed to trekking for thousands of miles over mountainous terrain, but Liz discovered that urban hiking poses its own unique set of challenges, as well as rewards. Her zig-zagging 175-mile course from La Canada-Flintridge to San Pedro included over 300 stairways. And she did it all in five and half days.
This woman is a badass. Read more about her journey (and how to emulate it) here.
