The final two (of four) volumes for the entire 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) All-color photos, maps, elevation profiles, charts, and more Dream books—and precious gifts—for trail lovers everywhere From the preeminent outdoor publisher in the West come the latest volumes in this new, unparalleled series of guidebooks to the region’s most famous trail. The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail meanders north from California’s border with Mexico to the entrance of Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia, on the Washington State–Canada border. It’s a rigorous trail that has evolved since its earliest envisioning in 1926 to encompass approximately 2,650 miles of rich and varied terrain, traveling through some of the West Coast’s most beautiful country. It inspires hikers of all ages and abilities to imagine the ultimate wilderness journey. The Southern California and Northern California guides of Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail complete the four-volume set written for hikers planning to just tackle the trail sections in their nearby region, those who will chip away at pieces of the whole trail over a lifetime, or trekkers who set out in the SoCal desert and charge all the way to Canada. These are lushly attractive guidebooks--good reads and gorgeous to page through to boot—but they also offer invaluable hiking beta. Each volume focuses on section-by-section routes in each state (or region), and provides important details to help hikers plan and organize multi-night backpacks. Here’s what’s included with each expertly written guidebook: • Trail sections that promote 4- to 10-night trips • Smaller section legs allowing for easier planning and trail-time management • Detailed camp-to-camp route descriptions • Easy-to-understand route maps • Clear references to the PCT’s established system of section letters, designating trail segments from south to north, Mexico to Canada, so hikers can easily cross reference other trail resources • Details on specific campsites • Most reliable water sources • Access to and from various trail sections • Info on permits, hazards, restrictions, and more • Alternate routes and connecting trails • Key wilderness sights along the way • Suggested itineraries Unlike other PCT guidebooks, this series focuses on section hikers, who make up the vast majority of adventurers on the trail. Only a handful of folks complete a thru-hike of the trail in one trip, but the trail’s popularity continues to grow. In 2015, long-distance hikers and horseback riders from all 50 states and 34 countries were issued permits to vacation on parts of the PCT. It is one of the seminal bucket list items for outdoor lovers, whether that means completing just your own state . . . and then the next . . . and then the next . . . or as far as your dreams will take you.

This pocket-sized gift and souvenir photo book captures the beauty of America's quintessential wilderness hiking trail. From desert California to the Washington-Canada border, the compelling photography of Bart Smith brings the entire 2,650-mile trail to life. This beautifully illustrated book, officially published with the Pacific Crest Trail Association in a pocket-sized gift and souvenir format, highlights this legendary footpath with more than 170 spectacular contemporary images taken by the foremost hiking photographer in America. Readers can experience the trail as if their boots were on the path--passing by the trail blazes, taking in the surrounding wilderness at scenic overlooks, meeting other hikers at lean-tos or shelters, and freezing at the sight of bear, elk, or other majestic wildlife. Designated as one of the first two national scenic trails in 1968, the Pacific Crest Trail is a continuous footpath of more than 2,650 miles--from the Mexican to the Canadian border. It is often called the "wilderness trail" because roughly half of it runs through federal wilderness--25 national forests, six national parks, five state parks, three national monuments, and 48 federal wilderness areas. The trail symbolizes everything there is to love--and protect--in the western United States. This book is perfect for anyone interested in conservation, outdoor recreation, or American history, or for those who dream of one day becoming thru-hikers themselves.

The Pacific Crest Trail was designated as one of the first National Scenic Trails way back in 1968. As it traverses the “high road” from Mexico to Canada, incredible views are not only commonplace but also uniquely diverse, because the trail connects six of North America’s seven eco-zones. The PCT’s familiar, well-worn path is a special place for hikers from all walks of life on walks of all lengths and for all reasons. Instead of guiding you through the arduous task of hiking the entire PCT, the goal of this book is to help you plan trips that incorporate hiking on the PCT in Southern California, whether you have just an afternoon to spare or you want to escape for the entire weekend. Carefully edited maps and elevation graphs generated with GPS data collected by the author on the trail will help make your trip a success. This cargo-pocket guide offers author-tested advice to help you make the most of your time away from civilization, however long (or short) that stretch may be.
