The Desert Trail is a 1,500 mile route from the border of Mexico to SE Oregon, complete with guidebooks designed for hikes of 2-4 days. On March 1 I began an attempt to thru-hike this route and continue through Washington and Idaho to the Canadian border for a total of about 2,500 miles.
I have currently hiked all of the California portion and have completed 800 miles of the whole trail so far.
Years of work have gone into the development of this largely unknown trail. Please check out the journal of my Desert Trail thru-hike and consider exploring part or all of this great trail yourself!
