Christian is now 9 years old, though he was much younger, 5 years old, when he completed his thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. Dion, Christian's Step Father, hiked every mile of the three major trails with him.
The family hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2012, Pacific Crest Trail in 2013, Colorado Trail in 2014 and they split the Continental Divide Trail into two summers 2016 and 2017.
