Key information: Pacific Crest Trail

    • The remarkable Pacific Crest Trail meanders for 2,663 miles from the Mexican border to the Canadian, following the first ranges inland from the Pacific - the Sierra Nevada and the Cascades - through California, Oregon and Washington states.
      • Enjoy scenery which varies from severe Southern desert to the high, Sierra Nevada, to the great volcanoes and of the Cascades.
        • Given its huge length, most people only tackle sections of the trail.
          • This is a very tough walk if you are walking long distances in often high, and always remote mountains, on which you will have to be self-sufficient and where water can be very scarce. Come prepared.
