    Greg Witt has lived the adventures he writes about and shares with audiences around the world. His journeys have taken him to every corner of the globe. He has guided mountaineering expeditions in the Alps and Andes and paddled wild rivers in the Americas. He has dropped teams of adventurers into golden slot canyons, trudged through deep jungles in Africa, Central America, and Asia, and guided archeological expeditions across the parched Arabian Peninsula. His passion for adventure has always focused on sharing his experience with others

    Following degrees from the University of California and Brigham Young University, he had an early career in human resources management; but Greg prefers high-adventure to the high-rise, so decades ago he traded his wingtips for hiking boots, and has never looked back.

    Some weeks, Greg hikes more miles than he drives, which means he wears out his boots faster than he wears out his tires. He has crossed the Grand Canyon on foot many times, climbed Colorado’s three highest peaks in three days, and in a recent summer in the Alps he hiked over 700 miles and gained nearly 100,000 vertical feet of elevation the equivalent of climbing Everest 9 times.

    Greg's other titles include Exploring Havasupai: A Guide to the Heart of the Grand Canyon andUltimate Adventures: A Rough Guide to Adventure Travel. He is the US Editor ofOff the Tourist Trail: 1000 Unexpected Travel Alternatives (DK Eyewitness Travel) and a contributing editor ofMake the Most of Your Time on Earth, A Rough Guide to the World.

    • Great book

      Bought the book for my husband and he loves it. He wants to do all 60 hikes! The book is descriptive and gives all sorts of inside information that only someone who has done the hike would know.
