The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail stretches roughly 2650 miles from Mexico to Canada, passing through rich and varied terrain in California, Oregon, and Washington. While many hikers attempt to cover that distance in a single, epic journey, most of us are lucky to have a week to devote to hiking.
Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Washington
breaks down the state's more than 500 miles of the PCT into stunning routes that you can knock off in four days, a week, or more. One of the state's most experienced hikers, author Tami Asars details everything a section hiker needs to know, including access points, mileages between campsites, and the best places to stake your tent, from the dense deciduous forests near the Columbia River to the beloved Goat Rocks and Indian Heaven wildernesses, from the outskirts of Mount Rainier National Park to the pristine Alpine Lakes Wilderness, and from the vivid waters of Lake Chelan to the dry ridgelines of the Pasayten Wilderness.
Whether you want to tackle the PCT section by section or explore the route at your leisure in Washington State - this unparalleled guide will help you find your way.
