Watch the PCT Class of 2015 video

The PCT might not change the world, but it sure does change people. As members of the class of 2015, you now are a part of that long lineage. What a year you had on the trail. This keepsake, beautifully edited by Daniel “Ratatouille” Hepokoski, is a testament to the fun, beauty, people, miles and wilderness. It changes you. Bring that change to bear. Keep the PCT close. Let it influence the rest of your life.

Your class video is just incredible. The quality of the photos, videos and editing seems to get better every year. It sure does look like you had fun and embraced the beauty of the PCT.

Ratatouille, inspired by the many PCT Class Videos that have come before it, writes:

“The 2015 PCT Class Video is a feature-length look at the Pacific Crest Trail through many different eyes. See the landscapes, wildlife, drought, wildfires, solitude and community as experienced by the Class of 2015. Over 200 hikers and a few trail angels contributed over 13,000 photos and video clips for consideration in this movie.”

Watch the class video above and when you’re done, leave a comment about it here. Be sure to check out Daniel’s podcast at The video contains mild nudity and profanity and may not be suitable for all audiences.
