The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail stretches roughly 2650 miles from Mexico to Canada, passing through the rich and varied terrain of California, Oregon, and Washington. While each year many hikers attempt to cover that distance in a single, months-long epic journey, most of us are lucky to have even a week to devote to hiking. So how can we get out on the most famous trail in the West?
With boots-on-the-ground trail beta from one of Oregon's most experienced hikers, Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon
breaks down the state's more than 450 miles of the PCT into manageable sections - stunning routes that can be easily knocked off in three days, a week, or more. Author Eli Boschetto details everything a section hiker needs to know, including access points, camp-to-camp mileages, and best places to stake a tent, from the rolling grasslands of the Soda Mountain Wilderness to the barren volcanic plains of the Central Cascades to the doorstep of Oregon's tallest peak, Mount Hood.
Whether you plan to tackle the PCT section by section or explore the route within Oregon at your leisure - this unparalleled guide will help you find your way.
