First published in 1973, The Pacific Crest Trail, Vol. 1, California quickly established itself as the "PCT Bible"-- the book trekkers could not do without. Now thoroughly updated and redesigned into two portable volumes, Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California starts at the Mexican border and guides you to Yosemite's beautiful back country. Its companion volume meets the trail at Tuolumne Meadows and drops you at Oregon's door. Thru-hikers to Canada will find the rest of their journey in Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon & Washington. Our PCT gurus help you locate the trail, water sources, and resupply access routes with detailed descriptions, customized maps, and tips on alternate routes. Whether you're planning day hikes, weekend or week long backbacks, or an ambitious thru-hike, everything you need to know about--from bears to trees--is here.
