During the 1800s, Americans traveling west toward the Pacific were challenged by incredible mountain barriers. It never entered anyone's mind to make a recreational trek along their crests...
Starting at the Mexican border, the Pacific Crest Trail winds past deserts, scales high peaks, and cools off in Sierra lakes before entering Oregon. By the time its 2,650-miles reach Canada, it has traversed 24 national forests, 37 wilderness areas, and 7 national parks.
