Phil’s Trail Photos


Over the years, I have hiked or backpacked many trails in California, mostly in the Sierra Nevada, and some trails elsewhere in the world. A partial list of the named trails is given below and I have posted many of my photos on this site so that you can see what the areas are like. Because of medication requirements, all my hikes after 2009 are day hikes. In this way, I hope I am providing planning assistance for your future activities. Those items on the list that are not links represent hikes on which I did not take a camera. You can click on any photo to see an enlarged version. If you have any questions about the photos or the hikes, I can be reached at
