Yogi's PCT Handbook March 2013 edition
This is the book you’ve been looking for. The thought of planning and completing a Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike can be overwhelming. There’s so much to learn: how to resupply, what shoes/gear to buy, how to survive in the desert and the snow, what Guidebooks to purchase, etc. Yogi’s Pacific Crest Trail Handbook answers all these questions . . . and more.
This valuable planning and hiking resource is written by hikers for hikers. It takes the confusion out of pre-hike planning and on-trail logistics. It is a collection of different opinions from people who have thru-hiked the PCT. We’ve been where you’re going. We’ve done what you’re about to do. This is the stuff we wish we knew before we thru-hiked.
The first section of the Handbook (220 pages) is a collection of tips from previous PCT thru-hikers on a variety of hiking topics such as: ● maps and guidebooks ● clothing ● footwear ● packs ● sleeping systems ● ultralight hiking ● desert advice ● Sierra advice ● resupply and ● travel to/from the start/finish of the trail. To see the full Table of Contents, scroll back up and click on the PDF link.
The second half of the PCT Handbook is the Trail Tips and Town Guide (196 pages). This section is printed on perforated paper, so you can remove these pages from the bound book and take them with you on the trail. Mileage matches Halfmile’s 2013 PCT maps.
TOWNS: Valuable information for 99 hiker stops (near-trail stores/towns/Resorts/Trail Angels) including: How to get to/from each resupply location ● Town Maps ● Maildrop Information ● Exactly what each town/resort has for resupply, lodging, restaurants, ATM, internet, fuel, shower, etc.
TRAIL: Historical data of every water source from Campo to Kennedy Meadows (“the desert”) ● Historical data of all critical water sources from Kennedy Meadows to Canada ● Where to go at confusing trail junctions ● Sierra-specific information: tips for crossing the passes, bear box locations, canister-required areas, Sierra Public Bus information ● Detour information ● The best places to eat ● Hiker-friendly motels ● 13-time PCT thru-hiker Scott Williamson has contributed his comments regarding water availability and places few people know about.
