Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon, 3rd edition 

Discover the best PCT sections for a day hike or weekend jaunt

Sweeping views, glorious meadows, towering peaks, countless lakes and waterfalls, Oregon’s portion of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail includes some of the most beautiful hikes in the country. Let local hiking expert Paul Gerald guide you to the best of them. You’ll find 28 day and overnight hikes, from a four-mile trip up Chinidere Mountain—with views stretching from Mount Jefferson to Mount Rainier—to a 30-mile trek to the incomparable Maidu Lake, the headwaters of the North Umpqua River.

This comprehensive guidebook includes trail maps and elevation profiles, as well as ratings for scenery, difficulty, solitude, trail condition, and accessibility for children. You’ll also find driving directions to trailheads, GPS waypoints for key locations, permit and fee instructions, and details about what to expect on the trail.

Traverse the “high road” through Oregon as the PCT crosses Mount Hood National Forest, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Crater Lake National Park, and so much more. Every trip is another adventure.

About Paul Gerald
Paul Gerald's writing career began in the sports department of the much-missed Dallas Times Herald. He later worked for the Memphis Commercial Appeal and the Memphis Flyer before setting out as a freelancer. Since then, he has written some 300 travel articles for the Flyer, and along the way his work has also appeared in Northwest Airlines' WorldTraveler, Portland’s Willamette Week, Dish Magazine, Nike. com, Weissmann Travel Reports, and numerous newspapers around the country. He's also worked in and around landscaping, restaurants, public relations, social work, an amusement park, Alaskan fishing boats, the YMCA, corporate marketing, and most recently as a package handler for FedEx. Such is the life of a writer who really, really wants to avoid having a regular job. His hiking life started at age 12, when he went to a summer camp in the Absoraka Mountains of Wyoming. He became a trail and road hound at that point, and his hometown of Memphis never looked the same. He's hiked extensively in the Rocky Mountains from New Mexico to Montana, as well as Appalachia, Alaska, Nepal, and Argentina. In 1996 he moved to Portland to be close to the ocean, the mountains, and the big trees. He has greatly enjoyed meeting people using his books out on the trails; he's also grateful that none of them appeared to be lost or angry. He does hope, however, that any feedback will be directed to him, care of the publisher, or at www.paulgerald.com. And he hopes people will continue to enjoy and benefit from the fruits of his labor.
