Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California: From the Mexican Border to Tuolumne Meadows

24.95

During the 1800s, Americans traveling west toward the Pacific were challenged by incredible mountain barriers. It never entered anyone's mind to make a recreational trek along their crest...

Starting at the Mexican border, the Pacific Crest Trail winds past deserts, scales high peaks, and cools off in Sierra lakes before entering Oregon. By the time its 2,650-miles reach Canada, it has traversed 24 national forests, 37 wilderness areas, and 7 national parks.

First published in 1973, The Pacific Crest Trail, Vol. 1, California  quickly established itself as the "PCT Bible" -- the book trekkers count not live 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 and 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 backpacks, or an ambitious thru-hike, everything you need to know about -- from bears to trees -- is here.
