Reader Feedback and Speaking Testimonials


Allison Driscoll started Trail to Summit as a personal site to keep track of her hiking adventures and share with fellow hikers. While it has grown a lot since 2011, it essentially serves the same purpose: to provide information and inspiration for fellow hikers.Within this site you will find trip reports of hikes all over New England, mainly focused on hiking the tallest peaks in each season, a 15 day John Muir Trail story, gear reviews, recipes, how to’s, and more!

Outdoor Community Involvement

Allison is an Appalachian Mountain Club volunteer trail maintainer for the Osseo Trail (this trail ascends Mt Flume) and lead hikes through Trail to Summit. For 2016 I am running the first annual Trail to 4K Hiking Challenge to inspire new hikers to get on the trail and do so with confidence!

    Hi there! My name is Rachel Sutton, and I represent The Edgewater in Seattle. We’re working on putting together some unique wellness programming at the hotel, and I wanted to reach out as I read about your urban hikes around Seattle that you embarked on not long ago. I would love to partner with you on maybe offering an urban hike around Seattle by way of the hotel. It’d be awesome to receive your list of 650 stairways , or if we could partner with you somehow to help us promote a challenge course for multiple lengths of stay, etc. Please let me know if this is something you do, or may be interested in. Happy to talk in further detail over the phone if that works: 323-717-9903. Thanks so much and hope to hear from you soon.
