About Me

Welcome to Hit The Trails KC

My name is Dan Warneke. I’m a sound designer, videographer, and a nature enthusiast.  I have been to many amazing places in my life, but one thing I have learned is that you do not need to travel to an exotic location to find something worth seeing.  In fact, sometimes the most fascinating things can be found right in your own backyard.

I produce short cinematic hiking videos for YouTube featuring virtual tours and reviews of nature trails in and around the Kansas City area


As an avid hiker and vlogger, I’ve taken some time to develop a set of equipment that is uniquely suited for my style of filming.


My field kit is effective, but amazingly lightweight and compact. Interested in doing a bit of nature vlogging yourself? See my list of equipment here.

Giving Back to the Community

I find immense joy spending my time traveling and communing with nature, and I’m thankful for the conservation work many people have done so that these places remain available for me to explore.


In this regard, I feel a strong desire to carry the torch. I want to make sure that I do my part to preserve and protect our fragile ecosystem so that others have the opportunity to experience the same joy I find in nature.
