Go Hike Alaska's Story
Owner and guide, Matt, is an Eagle Scout, Air Force veteran and certified by National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) in Wilderness First Response, First Aid/CPR, Avalanche Safety Level I, and as a Leave No Trace Master Educator.
Born in Michigan, Matt has lived in Alaska since 2011, and has spent every season hiking, snowshoeing and fishing with wife, Brandi, and daughter, Norah.
Matt's motivation for starting Go Hike Alaska is to showcase the world-class hiking opportunities that exist right outside of Anchorage.
He is dedicated to educating hikers, making them feel more confident and ready to continue their own hiking adventures.
"Matt was a wonderful guide. Took me on a personalized adventure that I will never forget. Alaska was a bucket list item for me and Matt made that even more of a unique experience. His knowledge of trails and fauna is outstanding. Would definitely come back in the winter and tour with Matt again.."
