Renee Sklarew

Renee Marchese Sklarew is a native Washingtonian who enjoys exploring her city's many attractions, including its parks and trails. As a young girl, her father received a temporary assignment that took her family to Switzerland, and that's where she began her passion for hiking and exploring. Today, her family makes surveying nature's wonders a priority, and they love visiting America's National Parks. Renee regularly contributes travel articles and photos to newspapers and magazines, including the Washingtonian, Northern Virginia Magazine, Boston Globe, and Washington Post. She is co-author of The Unofficial Guide to Washington DC and Fodor's Washington DC Guidebook. Recently, she joined the team of Oh Ranger! editing guides to national, state, and local parks. Renee hopes readers will use 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Washington D.C. to discover new trails and meaningful destinations.
