    Enjoy! That's a Beautiful 750 miles. (I've decided on hitting the CDT this March instead of the PCT again, no particular reason, just want to hike)

    Spectacular part of the trail. I did this in 2015 but went up to Muir Trail Ranch/Florence lake before aborting what was supposed to be a thru hike (long story).

    I started on April 13 -- you're a month ahead, so snow might be more of a factor for you than it was during my trip. I entered the Sierra at Kennedy Meadows in late May- I believe it was May 22, a low snow year, but we got a couple of late season storms that covered the trail on some of the passes.

    I wish I could do that trip again.

    Got off trail at Kennedy meadows due to incoming snow storm. I'll pick up those 40 miles next year. I've completed 1850 trail miles so far, 800 more to go next year. My journal is up to date if your interested in reading about it.

    Well, my 2022 permit has been approved for the last section to complete the PCT. 800 miles from Castle Crags to Kennedy Meadows South starting in August. If the weather is good I'll take the side trip up Mt Whitney.

    Nanatuk. Good luck to you this year on completing your journey. When do you plan to begin the 2022 hike?

    I'm off on the final section. Year 4 of my 3 year plan. I get on a train tomorrow and hit the trail Thursday morning. This section is 810 miles from I-5 near Dunsmuir hiking south to Kennedy Meadows south.

    Awesome ... you'll be finishing in the Sierra Nevada at the best time of year when few are on the trail but the weather is still (for the most part) great.

    Hello! I just finished up with the 317 miles between Cascade Locks and Stevens Pass and thought I’d mention something that came up OVER and OVER and OVER concerning timing in Washington. PCT Days took place Aug 19 & 20 in Cascade Locks, and everyone from a bartender in CL, everyone in the trail towns nobo, hikers who kept in contact with other hikers ahead, and comments in Far Out were talking about the absolute enormous amount of people in CL for this and that everyone headed out within a day or two of each other and it was a MASSIVE bubble. The comments in Far Out were about how many people they could jam in cowboy camping at all the tiny camp spots.

    Any upcoming plans for Washington might want to take PCT Days into consideration.

    (FYI, I started on Aug 31 and the section was incredible and gorgeous, the trail towns, especially Trout Lake, were so kind, and the thru and section hikers I met were really great.)
