The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT for short, officially Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail) is an approximately 2650-mile (4265-kilometer) long-distance hiking and equestrian trail in the western United States. It parallels the Pacific Ocean and runs along the ridges of the Sierra Nevada and Cascade ranges.
In the process, the trail crosses the American states of California, Oregon, and Washington.
The southern terminus of the Pacific Crest Trail is in the southern town of Campo on the United States-Mexico border, and the northern terminus is on the Canadian border at the edge of Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia. The highest point of the PCT is reached at Forester Pass in California at 4009 meters.
In maj 2018 I started the Pacific Crest Trail as my first long-distance thru-hike. A journey which changed in many ways my life. From the brutal heat of the Californian desert up to the first cold period in Washington, the PCT provided me with happiness, sadness, luck and satisfaction.
I met lots of great people, which even stays as life long friends. An unforgettable experience, which asks for more.
