Trail conditions and closures

Welcome to the official page for PCT trail closure and conditions information. The trail closure section is closely stewarded by the PCTA. The trail conditions section is crowdsourced; it depends on your contributions. Please report trail conditions. These pages can be sorted by location and type. Check back often for the latest information. Closure information is available offline at the conditions hotline: 1-888-PC-TRAIL. For water information, please visit the PCT Water Report.
