The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) winds for 460 miles along the crest of the Cascade Mountains in Oregon. From a high of 7,300 feet above sea level to a low of 200 feet, it traverses deep forest and mountain meadows, crosses whitewater streams and high-country-vistas, and visits countless lakes, including Crater Lake, one of the wonders of the United States. The PCT connects all these, yet its within a few hours of more than 90 percent of Oregons population. And while the PCT has a reputation as a hard-core wilderness experience, Oregon is considered the easiest, lowest-elevation section of the whole Trail. Hikers of all attitudes and abilities can enjoy the Trail through Oregon. Each day and overnight hike contains four key elements to help readers plan and enjoy the perfect trip: GPS-based trail maps GPS-based elevation profiles directions to the trailhead trail descriptions Each trail description offers precise commentary on what to expect along the way and rates each hike for: scenery trail condition difficulty accessibility for children solitude Designed to fit easily into a back pocket, Day and Overnight Hikes: Oregon's Pacific Crest Trail leads hikers and backpackers to sites of exceptional beauty and solitude. So grab your boots and start hiking in the great outdoors.
