Celebrating 50 years of the PCT
as a National Scenic Trail.

Meet the insanely lucky #PCTDirtyDozen

They’re called the #PCTDirtyDozen, but we’re still hoping that they’ll shower and do their laundry.

Lots of you applied (see the call) for free boxes of socks from KEEN or a brand new pack from Gregory. Each company chose a dozen hikers and beautiful free gear is starting to arrive in mailboxes around the country. Follow these lucky thru-hikers throughout the season at the #PCTDirtyDozen and #PacificCrestTrail hashtags.

Thanks Gregory and KEEN for being our partners and giving back to the trail!

Have an amazing summer everyone!
