Jeff Morris, a 5th generation Trinity County resident, started backpacking with his parents and grandparents in the Trinity Alps Wilderness (then Primitive Area) when he was 5 years old. Over the next 13 years his family and many others advocated for the beloved Alps to be protected through the Wilderness designation that they eventually received in 1984. Fast forward a few years (20) and, after a stint on the Trinity County Board of Supervisors from 2005-2009, Jeff has developed a career as a communications and management consultant through his small firm, Stream Crossing LLC.
Recent projects include his work with the team that helped Congressman Jared Huffman develop the Northern California Conservation and Recreation Act. This piece of draft federal public lands legislation includes designating The Bigfoot Trail as a National Recreation Trail.
Jeff continues to explore trails across the Northwest California region, plays trumpet and piano with a number of musical groups and divides his time between Trinity County and Ocean Beach, CA.
