Trail Names

William’s – Wandering Maps

Yasmin’s – Pink Pants

Why people chose to have alternative invented names on the trail seemed initially odd to us but not anymore. Christian names are common and it would be difficult otherwise to distinguish the many different Bobs and Kates we’d meet along the trail. So people invent or are given nicknames by their hiking companions. They are much easier to remember and less likely to be repetitious. Below is a short list of some of the names we’ve come across:


Tom Tom, Hey Girl, Spearhawk, Huming Bird, Shine On, Cinnamon 


Cool Aid, Orion, Top, Lord Byron, Lupen, Peacock, Still Looking, G-Funk, Flanders, Baby Jesus, Feast, Cebe, Franco
