Pacific Crest Trail Map
What the heck is the Pacific Crest Trail, you ask?
The PCT (that's what we call it, the PCT) is a very long, continuous hiking trail (a simple foot path) that runs from Campo, California at the Mexican border to Manning Park, BC Canada. This is about 2,650 trail miles.
The trail (we also call it "the trail") traverses California, Oregon and Washington. The trail passes through 24 national forests, 37 wilderness areas and 7 national parks. The high point along the PCT is Forester Pass at 13,200 feet in the High Sierra with the low point being 200 feet at the Oregon/Washington border.
This will be my second trip. I know, I know, Club Med would be less stressful.
What did I do today? So far I took a 16 mile training walk and that's about it. My training miles are up to 231 now. I need at least 325 to feel "prepared".
See you in a bit....
