Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon
A succinct, portable guide to the best segments of the Pacific Crest Trail in Oregon.
The Pacific Crest Trail was designated as one of the first National Scenic Trails way back in 1968. As it traverses the “high road” from Mexico to Canada, incredible views are not only commonplace but also uniquely diverse, because the trail connects six of North America’s seven eco-zones. The PCT’s familiar, well-worn path is a special place for hikers from all walks of life on walks of all lengths and for all reasons.
Instead of guiding you through the arduous task of hiking the entire PCT, the goal of this book is to help you plan trips that incorporate hiking on the PCT in Oregon, whether you have just an afternoon to spare or you want to escape for the entire weekend.
Carefully edited maps and elevation graphs generated with GPS data collected by the author on the trail will help make your trip a success.
This cargo-pocket guide offers author-tested advice to help you make the most of your time away from civilization, however long (or short) that stretch may be.
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
before setting out as a freelancer. Since then, he has written some 300 travel articles for the
, and along the way his work has also appeared in Northwest Airlines'
, 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.
