My name is Jesse Cody and I’m the founder/director of Hike the Good Hike. For the past year, I have been building HTGH into a brand that emphasizes the benefits of hiking and wilderness exploration to mental health.
Late in 2014, after years of struggling with my own mental health, I was contemplating suicide. Through a series of serendipitous occurrences involving Robert Redford and Bill Bryson’s book A Walk in the Woods, I found myself on the Appalachian Trail. It was the walk that saved my life.
5 years and roughly 6000 miles later, I embrace life and am aligned with my purpose. Hiking saved my life, and I am committed to sharing my journey to inspire others through speaking and writing.
In this day and age, many people are stressed, alienated, depressed, and mentally taxed. HTGH seeks to offer inspiration about how to cultivate a more positive lifestyle and mind while raising awareness about mental health.
