Section Hikes in NOBO Order starting from the Mexican border
NOTE that I didn’t hike each section in the same direction!
Why not? Because I usually chose to start at the higher elevation trailhead! Laziness, pure and simple.
CA Section A: mile 0-111 (San Diego Mtns and Desert)
CA Section B: mile 111-215 (Riverside Mtns)
CA Section C: mile 215-347 (San Bernardino Mtns)
CA Section D: mile 342-455 (San Gabriel Mtns)
Mile 374-378: Hiked from Vincent Gap up Baden-Powell back in the late 90’s, so no Trip Report
Mile 389-394 Didn’t hike the frog closure section along Highway 2 – It’s a road walk, no thanks
CA Section E: mile 455-566 (Mojave Desert)
I’m getting older, and life may be too short to waste my time on this horridly dry section primarily composed of boring dirt roads
CA Section F: mile 567-652 (Far Southern Sierra)
I’m still waiting for a wet year to try this ultra-dry section from Tehachapi to Walker Pass
CA Section G: mile 652-767 (Southern Sierra)
CA Section H: mile 767-942 (High Sierra)
Mile 856-880 Upcoming hike in July 2022: Piute Pass to Mono Pass
CA Section I: mile 942-1016 (Yosemite – Northern Sierra)
Mile 962-1017: Nothing north of Matterhorn Canyon in this section. Yet.
CA Section J: mile 1017-1092 (Sonora Pass to Lake Tahoe)
Nothing yet, but it sounds pretty nice
CA Section K: mile 1092-1156 (Lake Tahoe)
No Oregon yet (maybe some in 2022 if it doesn’t burn), and only a two mile stretch in Washington, except for the PCT’s northernmost section:
WA Section L: mile 2592-2660 (Final Section into Canada)
Mile 2636-2652 Holman Pass to Canadian Border – maybe this year 2022? I can hope…
