Celebrating 50 years of the PCT
as a National Scenic Trail.

Portion of official PCT closed in Crater Lake National Park

Sections: /
February 28th, 2018

The official PCT is closed from the intersection with the Lightning Springs Trail (mile 1827.4) to the North Entrance Road (mile 1839.7). The Lightning Springs Trail and the West Rim Trail are open.

Hikers will want to use the West Rim Trail through the park. Equestrians are not allowed on the West Rim Trail and will need to shuttle around the closed section of the PCT.

The PCT closure will likely remain in place at least through a significant part of the 2018 season.
