The Pacific Crest Trail  (PCT) extends 2,663 miles from the US/Mexico border near Campo, California through California, Oregon and Washington, seven national parks and 25 national forests to Manning Park in BC, Canada.

The trail leads hikers through the Mojave desert, over the Sierra Nevada mountains, right past Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the contiguous 48), through Yosemite National Park, skirts around Crater Lake and then leads up through the beautiful North Cascades before coming to a an end in Canada. While many people hike sections of the trail throughout the year,  we completed a thru-hike, which consisted of hiking the trail end-to-end in one season.
