American Discovery Trail

Briana DeSanctis
"Rocky Mountain High"


I'm Briana

Born in Maine but native to nowhere in particular, I've been an outdoorswoman my whole life. I've hiked and paddled thousands of miles all over the USA. 

In 2015 I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. In February 2024 I completed a  6,800-mile thru-hike of the American Discovery Trail and was awarded the title of the first woman to do so. 

My mission is to educate, inspire and empower others through motivational speaking.
