Islander aims for the triple crown

  • May 11, 2016 at 1:30AM

Since the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) gained notoriety through the 2014 movie, "Wild," people have flocked to hike the PCT. Others have hiked the Appalachian Trail (AT) and some have hiked both, but few have achieved the pinnacle of hiking by also traversing the third and most difficult trail, the Continental Divide (CDT).

Islander Lizzy Corliss, 24, plans to throw her backpack into the pool of the select few — under 200 — who have hiked all three, achieving the Triple Crown of hiking.

Islander completes second trek in the triple crown of hiking

  • Oct 28, 2015 at 6:00AM

Ask islander Lizzy Corliss about her adventures hiking the Appalachian Trail solo this year or the Pacific Crest Trail with her brother Josh last year, and her stories are peppered with names like Neon, Goosebumps, Magic Stick, Pan, Tooneboost and her own — Laugh Track. There's a unique culture born from hours on the trail — including lingo and nicknames. Corliss will share her first-hand knowledge about trail culture, her experiences while hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT) and show slides at 7 p.m. Friday at the Land Trust building.
