Seattle Branch Oregon PCT Section Hiker


Seattle Branch Oregon PCT Section Hiker

A profile badge awarded for backpacking the entire Oregon portion of the Pacific Crest Trail in sections.

About The Award

Backpack the entire Oregon section of the Pacific Crest Trail between California and Washington in sections to earn the Oregon PCT Section Hiker badge for your profile.

How To Obtain

Backpack the entire Oregon section of the Pacific Crest Trail between the North Crater Trailhead near the California/Oregon border and The Bridge of the Gods at the Columbia River in multiple sections. The trail can be done in as many sections as desired, however all sections must be overnight backpacking trips except for a maximum of five that can be done as day hikes.  The sections can be done in any order, and each section can be done in either direction, either NoBo or SoBo. It is not necessary to backtrack the 0.1 mile from the North Crater Trailhead connector trail to tag the California/Oregon border (but those who want their claim to stand up to scrutiny at the Pub are advised to do so).

Trips can be private with non-Mountaineers team members.  All trips must be done in accordance with Leave No Trace and in accordance with the policies of all relevant local land management agencies, including the use of valid permits, proper food storage, acceptable resupply practices, etc.


Contact the Seattle Backpacking Committee chair.  For each section include the starting and ending dates, starting and ending trailheads, and the names of the other people in your party.  If any sections were done as a Club trip, also include the leader’s name and branch.  Please list your sections geographically instead of chronologically, with adjacent sections next to each other.
