The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) stretches from Mexico to Canada for 2,650 miles. The terrain that it covers between Donner Pass and Squaw Valley is among the most beautiful of the journey. Here, where the Sierra begins its slow descent for northbound hikers, southbound day hikers enjoy the reciprocal, an easy ascent into the backcountry. An uphill hike across forested ski slopes leads past Donner and Judah before crossing Roller Pass. Western hemlocks block the wind before you reach the apex of another exposed ridgeline, which you will follow to Anderson and on to Tinker. Descend into the upper reaches of the North Fork of the American River canyon, then traverse beneath Billy’s Peak. Once across the headwaters of the North Fork, a 500- foot climb toward Granite Chief brings you to the trail descending to Squaw Valley, where you emerge next to the fire station.
