Biography - Ed Moran

A long time hike leader and trip organizer, Ed prides himself on organizing  safe but challenging and rewarding experiences that match the goals and abilities of his clients. Every day is different and Ed is equally at home on comfortable walks in the woods, or off trail navigating on a dense scrambly mountainside.  From fun social backpacking for novices to advanced navigation and multi-day trips in the back country, his goal is to teach while insuring an enjoyable experience that clients will want to repeat.  Many years as a hike leader for outdoor clubs, as a Scoutmaster, and in positions ranging from programs chair, Director, and President of his Adirondack Mountain Club chapter have helped Ed develop a keen sense of how to challenge and excite outdoor enthusiasts of different abilities and aspirations. Ed is a New York State licensed outdoor guide and has been hiking in the forests of the northeast for over 25 years. He has hiked all 35 of the Catskill Mountain high peaks in both summer and winter (and has bushwhacked most of them as well).  He has also hiked all 48 of the 4000 foot peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and repeated many of them several times over while leading groups on multi day adventures.
