The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is the longest scenic trail in the United States, running 2659 miles from the Mexican border near San Diego to the Canadian border in Washington State.
2016's hike was a 222-mile trek from Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Valley. (see photos below)
On July 22, 2017 the planned backpacking trip was to be 75 miles, from Sonora Pass to Echo Lake. While snow cut this trip short, scout leaders and groups of scouts have continued to pursue the goal of hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail.
2019 included 3 treks and multiple day and weekend hikes that covered 240 miles. We finished 2019 with almost 1,100 miles completed.
2020 has already covered 85 miles. Our three summer treks will add an additional 345 miles and taking us to within 100 miles of the California/Oregon border. We have now completed our first two summer trips of 2020. For an update, visit HIKE UPDATE -2020.
2021 was the most aggressive hiking plan we ever attempted. We planned two long term trips over the summer. Unable to compete a planned 2020 fall hike due to Steve’s Achilles injury, we really wanted to cover some mileage. For an update, visit HIKE UPDATE -2021.
2022 was the summer of closing remaining gaps in OR and CA. We also made our first miles in WA. For an update, visit HIKE UPDATE -2022.
Scouts leaders and groups of scouts will continue to pursue the goal of hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail.
