The Pacific Crest Trail accesses and protects some of our nation’s and nature’s crown jewels. As a vehicle for introducing you to the outdoors, it is unparalleled.
Traversing 700 miles of deserts and mountain ranges, the Pacific Crest Trail is striking and easily accessible in Southern California.
The Pacific Crest Trail through the famed Sierra Nevada is one of the premier trail experiences in the world.
From the southernmost Cascades to the "Big Bend", the PCT in Northern California is marked by solitude.
Whether you’re adventuring on the crest at the pace of a thru-hiker, or the crawl of a toddler in camp, the geography, geology, biology and botany of the PCT can keep you engaged through a lifetime of exploration.
