About the Trail
"The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail is a
long-distance trail for hikers and equestrians. It extends 2,658
miles from Canada to Mexico along the rugged and often remote crest
of the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada. It is marked and maintained
through 3 states, 8 national parks and monuments, 5 state parks,
24 national forests, 25 wilderness areas, 3 BLM districts, plus
state and private lands. Each year, a few determined people travel
the entire length on foot or by horse."
