June 21 – Hike Naked Day and the Never-Nudes

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself.” —Cynthia Heimel

1/2 mile before Rock Creek to Piney Creek Highway 24

Every year June 21st is Hike Naked Day in the backcountry. it is especially popular amongst the thru-hiking community. Our very fun group planned ahead and dressed as Never-nudes from the TV series Arrested Development. A Never-nude is a person that always has some clothing on even in the shower.

The day was full of lots of laughter, photo shoots, and gentle terrain through deep forest. We even had trail magic sodas at Tennessee Pass by Slapshot. I promptly downed a Root Beer. Thank you Slapshot. Have fun with the photos!










  1. The cut-offs are hi-AR-eous! So June 22nd must be Hike Sunburned Day?

    • What is funny is that everyone WAS worried and they put a ton of sunscreen on. They all looked like they stepped back into the 70’s and 80’s. it was a fun day.

    Glad you had some sunshine on the naked day, looks like fun!

  3. That relieves my mind greatly!! Had some strange visions of what might be happening up there..Sounds like a fun day.

  4. Cut-off jeans. Wow. Remember those in the seventies! -Never watched AD so I guess I’m not in on the joke. Glad you all had fun on June 21st.
