Day hiking these three classic trails is a ?ve-star scenic experience worth every bit of e?ort. However, it isn’t triple the work—in this case, it’s the pleasure that is multiplied. The Paci?c Crest National Scenic Trail (PCT) isn’t called “scenic” for naught. And there just weren’t any shabby trails used when creating either the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) or the Tahoe–Yosemite Trail (TYT).
