PACIFIC CREST TRAIL (CICERONE)
The Pacific Crest Trail
The 2700-mile Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail takes the hiker from Mexico to Canada through the mountains of California, Oregon and Washington. This wilderness trail is purpose built for the exclusive use of hikers and horse-riders and takes you easily through some of the most fantastic scenery in the world, with the added advantage that you can expect clear sunny weather for most of your hike.
The arid mountains and deserts of Southern California are followed by the magnificent glaciated mountains of the High Sierra. You have the option of climbing Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the US outside Alaska, before following the John Muir Trail to Yosemite National Park. The Cascade Mountains of Northern California, Oregon and Washington are dominated by volcanoes rising to over 14,000ft.
Most hikers will be hiking short sections of the trail, but several hundred each year take on the ultimate challenge of thru'-hiking the entire trail in one summer. This comprehensive guidebook provides all the information you need to plan and undertake a hike of the PCT.
