First Name





Hello! In the real world, my name is Emma Massick but on the trail, I go by Pepper! (I'll respond to either name though!)

I’m the Community Manager here at SocialHiker and I love checking out your hike logs and browsing through the awesome pictures you upload!

If you are new to the challenge, here are some helpful links that will help you get used to the process of logging your hikes:

From your phone:

From the desktop (start at 5:26)

Let me know if you need any more help! You can reach me here or at emma.massick@socialadventures.net



I have been an outdoors lover and avid hiker for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Southern California, then spent some time in the Bay Area before relocating to Montana, and then in 2019 I moved to Tennessee so I suppose you could say I have traveled around a bit!

I have been participating in the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenges for a few years now, and was also an ambassador for the Norcal Six Pack for a few years! I also completed the JMT as a solo hike in 2018, which I am very proud of.

If I had to name three things that get me excited, I’d say sustainability, hiking, and making connections with people. I think this is a great place to make connections because I can assume that if you are here, we already have a love of hiking in common, so we’ll always have something to talk about! Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about the challenges or if you just want to chat!

See you on the trails!

Emma 🙂
