Tom Zavalitroga


Bio: Tom Zavalidroga grew up in Mendham, NJ with a plant and herb expert mother and an outdoorsman father. 

By the age of seventeen, Tom was ready to see the world and began a series of solo hitchhiking and wilderness treks throughout the Adirondacks and northern New England. 

After entering college, he spent much of his spare time learning new wilderness skills, one of which was becoming proficient with map and compass wilderness orienteering, and eventually, these skills gave him the confidence to broaden his horizons to include many wilderness areas throughout the Rocky Mountains and far west.

Currently, Tom lives in the Northshire area and is active in writing, blogging, and photography.


Hike: Tom will be leading beginner hikes and walks from the Inn around the property and down along the river. Join him in savoring all Vermont has to offer with its natural waters and mountain views.
