Heather "Anish" Anderson is an American hiker known for setting the record for fastest-known, self-supported hike of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013,[1] the fastest-known, self-supported hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2015,[2] and for being the first woman known to have completed the so-called Triple Crown in a single calendar year.[3][4][5] The Triple Crown refers to completing three long-distance hikes in the United States: the Continental Divide Trail, the Appalachian Trail, and the Pacific Crest Trail. Heather Anderson uses the name "Anish" within the hiking community,[5] following community norms of adopting pseudonymous names while completing long-distance trails. Anderson is the author of Thirst: 2600 Miles to Home, a book detailing her completion of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013.[6]
