Pacific Crest Trail, Goat Rocks Wilderness Section Professional Review and Guide

"Hike the crest of the Cascade Mountains through spectacular Goat Rocks Wilderness. This is the highest section of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in Washington. The section of the PCT described here stays at or above timberline for nearly 5 miles.

Storms in this high-altitude, open country are far fiercer than they are at more moderate elevations in the trees. Be prepared with wind and rain gear even in mid-summer. This is the longest hike described in this book. Be sure all the members of your party are up to it."
