In addition to his work as an award-winning television writer and producer, Casey Schreiner has been a leading figure in the Los Angeles hiking scene since 2006, when he founded the site Modern Hiker. Since then, the site has grown to become the most-read hiking website on the West Coast, covering hundreds of trails from Canada to Mexico, breaking national news about public lands vandals, and offering in-depth reporting on outdoor issues facing the West.
Schreiner’s first book Day Hiking Los Angeles (Mountaineers Books) is the most up-to-date hiking guidebook for the Los Angeles area. In addition to covering 125 hiking routes for all ages and abilities in the greater Los Angeles area, the book is also full of fascinating histories and engaging descriptions that defy L.A. stereotypes and prove that yes, you can hike in the City of Angels.
