8:00 AM at Chinook Pass
This is a 1-way backpack trip of 30 miles on the PCT. We'll do a car drop at Chinook Pass, then travel to White Pass where our adventure begins. With the exception of one somewhat steepish climb out of Fish Lake halfway through our journey, the Pacific Crest Trail climbs gently through the William O. Douglas Wilderness Area. Hundreds of small lakes and tarns dot the scenery in this area, and we should see Mt. Rainier, the Goat Rocks and Mt. Adams. The PCT enters Mount Rainier National Park for a short distance as it nears Chinook Pass. Some backpacking or camping experience is recommended for this trip. You must be able to hike at least 10 miles a day (for 3 days in a row) with your overnight pack for this trip. We will make our own carpool arrangements for this trip. Questions? Email is the most reliable way to get in touch with me. Please note: This hike is NOT part of the Pacific Crest Series, so these 30 miles don't count towards the PCT Series course requirements.
