Jesse Cody

Backpacking, Hiking, Camping

Jesse Cody, a Cambridge, MA native currently living in Santa Fe, NM, is the founder of Hike the Good Hike, a movement and non-profit in the making.

Over the last several years, he's used his experience of finding mental health and healing in the outdoors as the pillar of this organization. As someone who battled insecurity, depression, and suicidal thoughts for most of his life, this movement is near and dear to his heart. 

Nature came and found Jesse and pulled him out of the darkness. He finally calmed the voices in his head that he spent a lifetime battling and learned to engage with them from a thoughtful and grounded place. Seven years and roughly 10,000 miles of the trail later, he embraces life fully and feels deeply aligned with his purpose. 

In 2022, as a nonprofit, Jesse and HTGH will launch the "Hiking the Good Hike with Jesse Cody" YouTube page, continue to use ongoing hiking treks to raise awareness, and expand partnerships with metal health organizations/wilderness therapy programs to help their growth.
