My name is Michael Doyle and I am an amateur writer, poet, photographer and woodworker. Hiking has been my passion for most of my life and I use each of these mediums (except for the woodworking!) to convey that passion through The Zen Hiker.
Living in the Hudson Valley of New York provides me with a wide range of hikes: in length, difficulty and terrain. If you are from the Tri State area (NY, NJ &CN) and are looking for a hike, feel free to pick a month and dive right in! If you aren’t from this area, please take some time to check out everything that The Zen Hiker has to offer.
When I am not hiking, I work as a special education history teacher at a high school in Westchester County, NY where I have worked for the last eighteen years.
