Pacific Crest Trail Maps

The PCT is the 2650 mile national scenic hiking trail that stretches from Mexico to Canada & thousands of backpackers use it every year. The Pacific Crest trail starts near Tecate & Campo California, heads north thru SoCal mountains & desert terrain, then up to Big Bear Lake. Eventually it'll end up in the High Sierra, the most majestic & desirable part of the journey. The newest waterproof maps are available for the whole stretch of the long journey. The PCT#1 covers SoCal & the PCT#2 map focuses on the area south of Tehachapi. The #3 deals with the Southern Sierra and so on, all the way north to Washington State and the Canadian border.

If you're planning on hiking the whole thing, take more than a year off of work, get physically conditioned way ahead of time & start your research here
