Purchasing PCT Guidebooks

Postby stillroaming » Wed Aug 02, 2006 10:51 am

Most hikers require the following books for their hike:
Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California
Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California
Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon & Washington
Pacific Crest Trail Data Book

If you were to purchase these books from the PCTA, they will cost $74.80 (USD)
These same books from Amazon.Com will cost you $45.95 (USD)
(both exclude shipping)

If you're on a budget $30 difference might be a big deal. The point is, we want you to have a choice. If you want spend the extra $30, by all means do, it goes to a good cause. Just know that you don't have to.

Regardless, every 6 months we will write a check for any profits we may incur and send it to the PCTA.
