Pacific Northwest Trail Digest - 2015 Edition : Trail Tips and Navigation Notes
From the Continental Divide in Glacier National Park to Cape Alava on the Pacific Ocean in Olympic National Park, the Pacific Northwest Trail takes you on 1200 miles journey along the U.S. - Canada border. Along the way you hike through North Cascades National Park, four wilderness areas, and seven national forests. At its worst you're chest deep in nettles and fire grass, with cold wet feet, no human contact for eight days, and no trail in sight. Bushwhacking along the border with Canada trying to find the Pacific Northwest National Scenic trail can challenge even world-class long distance hikers. But ... at its best, you are offered park-like hiking with breath-taking views of mountains peaks, incredible waterfalls, pristine glacier fed lakes, fertile farm valleys, and wilderness ocean beach hiking.
