The Trail Less Traveled


Steve Saroff tells the story of a drifting runaway who walked thousands of miles across America.

Steve Saroff enjoys wilderness, solitude, ceramics, writing, photography, entomology and much more but mostly relates with who he was many years ago... a drifting runaway. When he was 14 years old, he walked alone for 500 miles in the Appalachian Mountains. Then another 500 miles when he was 15 and 1,000 miles alone when he was 16. Steve left home and school when he was 17 to hitchhike across the West. When he was 19 he spent over 45-days walking alone in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Steve calls Missoula, Montana his home.
