The 2650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, adopted by Congress as a National Scenic Trail, passes through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United States. Hiking along this ridge-crest route, you'll see Mt. Jacinto, Mt. Whitney, Mt. Ordeals, Lassen Peak, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, and Glacier Peak. You'll traverse 24 national forests, 34 wilderness zones, 7 national parks, plus numerous other parks and recreational areas. Trail elevations range from near sea level at the Columbia River on the Oregon-Washington border to 13,180 feet at Forester Pass in the High Sierra.
