Share your passion for the Pacific Crest Trail with a PCTA gift membership

A gift membership for family or friends is a thoughtful way to express your best wishes during the holidays, in honor of a birthday or other special event.

Gift membership recipients will enjoy membership benefits for one year, including:

  • the PCT Communicator, our quarterly member magazine loaded with color photographs and fascinating features about the trail;
  • a one-year subscription to Backpacker Magazine (U.S. residents only);
  • a Pacific Crest Trail decal and map brochure;
  • discounts on guidebooks and other trail-related items through our online store;
  • invitations to participate in trail classes and volunteer trail projects;

Your gift to PCTA not only shows that special person you care but it also helps support PCTA’s efforts to protect and maintain the trail. And every time they read about the trail in the PCT Communicator, PCTA’s member magazine, they’ll remember your generous gift.

Give a gift membership online or give us a call at (916) 285-1855.

Once we receive your gift membership order, we’ll send you a letter confirming your gift membership has been received.  We’ll then send a nice letter and membership packet to that special person indicating you’ve given this membership in their honor.
