Understand[edit]

The route was first explored in the 1930s by teams from the YMCA. Clinton Clarke and Warren Rogers lobbied the federal government to provide a corridor. The PCT was eventually designated one of the first scenic trails in the National Trails System authorized by Congress in 1968, and was dedicated in 1993.

Prepare[edit]

Useful information about the trail is provided by the Pacific Crest Trail Association [1]

To understand the trail it has been divided in many guidebooks into 3 sectors.

Southern California (Mexico-Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite)

Northern California (Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite-Oregon)

Pacific Northwest (Oregon-Canada)

Most hikers travel South to North, but a few start from Canada.
