The “PCT Bible” for More Than 40 Years
From the time the PCT leaves the Mexican border until it reaches Canada, it has traveled 2,650 miles through 24 national forests, 37 wilderness areas, and 7 national parks. In Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California, you’ll meet up with the PCT in Yosemite National Park’s Tuolumne Meadows, then hike, climb, descend, and switchback your way to the Oregon border. You’ll discover rivers, peaks, forests, meadows, fascinating geological formations, and other natural wonders. You’ll pass through Emigrant, Desolation, and Marble Mountain wildernesses; Trinity Alps and Lassen National Park; and you’ll see Lake Tahoe, Burney Falls, Mount Shasta, and Castle Crags.
