Hi, my name is Pip Redding. I’m excited to announce my return to GHCC as the 2022 BMT Trail Coordinator! I’ve already met quite a few of you on the trails or around town in Wallowa County, but I can’t wait to meet even more of our amazing supporters.


My professional experience includes years with the Forest Service maintaining trails and fighting fire in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest and elsewhere. As a long-distance hiker, I hope to bring a valuable perspective to the development of the BMT as a premier long-distant route through Northeast Oregon.


This year I am helping trail users plan their hikes. I am also working personally with local volunteer organizations and the Forest Service to improve the BMT, refine the route, and grow our own network of trail stewards. Please reach out to me for any Blue Mountains Trail information, maps, and logistics for your outing. My email address is pip@hellscanyon.org.
