Only The Essential trailer – a new Pacific Crest Trail documentary

Colin Arisman and Casey Gannon launched the trailer to their beautiful new Pacific Crest Trail documentary. The full movie will be available online for free in the fall. We’re excited to see how it captures the magic and the spirit of the Pacific Crest Trail. Based on the trailer, it’s going to be a great movie!

Check out Colin’s website at and like the Only The Essential Facebook page. Colin is a part of a new generation of PCTA supporters and we’ll be publishing some of his art over the next few months.
