For many people, the Pacific Crest is the ultimate long-distance hiking trail. Beginning in the dry valleys of southern California, it follows the crest of the snow-capped Sierras, and ends in the ancient forests of Washington's Cascades. This is a guide to hiking the Pacific Crest. For each section of the trail, the authors describe the route in detail and recommend the best day hikes and short backpacks from each trailhead. They describe the plants and animals hikers will see, tell stories about local history, and even explain plate tectonics. In addition, the authors draw on their own experiences - for together they have logged more than 12,000 miles on the PCT - to give tested advice on trip planning, gear and safety, seasonal considerations, trailheads and resupplies, permits, and more
