Pacific Crest Trail Map

Begin Hike Preperations

I'm starting preparations for the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) hike. I am a complete novice but intend to try a test hike in 2014 and to hike the full trail in 2015. Since I have done a lot of day hikes but no overnight hikes there is some preparation and training needed. The PCT has been on my bucket list for a while with hiking to the top of Mt Whitney, Half Dome, and down to the Colorado River at the Grand Canyon. The first two were completed 20 years ago when the list was created. The later just last year. I did the Mt Whitney hike as a day hike from Whitney Portal and back. Being a realist, I realize I likely will not complete the full hike in one year unless it is a perfect year with water available and little snow but, at the minimum, I will have started a section hike and learned how to backpack, enabling lots of other hiking possibilities.
