This spring, we’re touring the Northwest to showcase the new guidebook, Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon. We’ll be appearing at bookstores, gear shops, hiking clubs and local hiker hangouts. At each event, guidebook author Eli Boschetto breaks down the state’s 455 miles of Oregon’s PCT into manageable sections—each with stunning routes that can be hiked in a long weekend, a week or more. Details include trail accessability, campsites, water, wilderness permits and gearing up for hiking from the rolling grasslands of the Soda Mountain Wilderness to the volcanic plains of the Central Cascades to the doorstep of Oregon’s tallest peak, Mount Hood. Bring your questions and your appetite for adventure!
