“On May 19, 2018, three friends set out from the Mexican border on a 2,650 mile journey to hike to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). This is their story. Unscripted, raw…a look into the wild, strange, beautiful lifestyle of a 5-month thru-hike across America.”
Searching for you next outdoor BHAG? Consider a through hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. Might have to put your real life on pause for a few months but if you can swing it, it’s the experience of a life time. Here’s a little inspiration for a trio of friends who did the entire 2,650 mile journey from Canada to Mexico. Rad.
Traversing some of the most stunning, remote wilderness and landscapes of California, Oregon and Washington, sharing beauty with the John Muir Trail in the Sierras, and climbing amongst the jagged Cascade Range in the PNW, the 2,650-mile PCT is truly unique in its diversity and majesty. Backpacking and exploring the trail is a privilege we often take for granted, and wouldn’t be possible without the tireless efforts of the Pacific Crest Trail Association (https://www.pcta.org), which has been developing, protecting and advocating for the PCT since 1977. They are the glue that binds the trail together, and are responsible for thousands of hiker’s dreams coming true. If you feel led, please head to this link (https://www.pcta.org/donate/#donate) and think about supporting them in one way or another so they can continue to make the trail accessible for everyone, and protect the natural wonder it takes us through. Happy trails, wherever they take you!
