About Nick

Working as a nationally-published adventure journalist, Nick Belcaster lives in Bellingham, Washington and cut his hiking teeth on the jagged wave of the North Cascades. Much of his freelance work deals with the people, history and stories that occur in the outdoors, including protection of places like the Pacific Crest Trail. The PCT will be his first thru-hike, having been led there by “too much Kerouac, that silly Bill Bryson book, and a few soggy tromps on Vancouver Island’s West Coast Trail,” he says. “I see the PCT and other long trails as one of the few bastions of wilderness solitude left in an increasingly urban country, and knowing it and understanding it is something that I would love to share with other folks,” he says.” Hiking with his partner Erika, Nick’s focus will be telling stories from the trail that help protect, preserve, and promote the PCT.
