Oregon’s PCT Trail Angels

This directory is to help Pacific Crest Trail long-distance section- and thru-hikers connect with Oregon Trail Angels. Services include shuttle transportation between trailheads and local towns, resupply holds, shower and laundry facilities, and limited accommodations. Services vary among providers. Trail Angels are listed by location in Oregon, south to north.

Once you know approximately when you may be in need of Trail Angel assistance, it is recommended that you contact them in advance to ensure their availability—as they like to hike, too. Please show your appreciation for Trail Angels and the services they provide by furnishing the requested fee or donation, and respecting their vehicles and property. See below for more information.
