Preserve the PCT’s wild character by making a donation today

Ansel Adams Wilderness. John Muir Wilderness. Mt. Jefferson Wilderness. Goat Rocks Wilderness.

What do all these Wilderness areas have in common?

They all exist because of the protection they received when the Wilderness Act was approved fifty years ago. And of course, they have some of the most stunning scenery imaginable along the Pacific Crest Trail, if not in the world.

As you think about your charitable giving at this time of year, please consider honoring the trail and the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act by making a gift to Pacific Crest Trail Association today. We have a goal of raising $50,000 online in December. Your support can help us get there.

Your support will help PCTA continue our work to preserve the trail and its wild character so that it will be here for you and for future generations. We’ll work to bring further awareness of the PCT to a broader audience so that we can build a stronger community of champions for the trail.

Your gift today will go a long way in helping us reach our goal of $50,000 in online donations this December and helping the trail remain wild.
