Pacific Crest Trail Northern California  by Jeffrey P. Schaffer
From the time the PCT leaves the Mexican border until it reaches Canada, it has traveled 2,650 miles through 24 national forests, 27 wilderness areas, and 7 national parks. In Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California, you'll meet up with the PCT in Yosemite National Park's Tuolumme Meadows, then hike, climb, descend, fall, and switchback your way to the Oregon border. You'll discover rivers, peaks, forests, gold, meadows, fascinating geological formations, and other natural wonders.
