    Default Oregon permit / hiking restrictions coming in 2020

    Just want to make people aware that plans are in the works to implement a quota based permitting system for some of the most popular areas along the PCT in Oregon starting in 2020.

    For PCT thru-hike holders, it looks like the impact will be minimal. But for a PCT section hiker doing less than 500 miles (like me) this will be a big PITA. Of greatest concern to me is the fixed start and end dates. My daily miles vary quit a bit depending on any number of factors and I have yet to have an itinerary that I have been able to perfectly match. The limit of only two! 'Skyline' permits a day is also severely limiting, good luck nabbing one for the days you want.

    My suggestion would be to enjoy your Oregon section hike this summer if you can.

    this sucks! but is the way it goes - land managers know its easier to restrict access than to get hikers to reduce their impact.
