A single trail from the California desert to the Cascades of Washington

The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the first national scenic trails, spans 2,650 miles from the Mexican border through California, Oregon, and Washington to the northern terminus on the Canadian border. This famous trail crosses some of the most scenic landscapes of the western U.S., including six national parks, 25 national forests, 48 wilderness areas, the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, the snowcapped Sierra Nevada, and the volcanic Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest.
