Great PCT resources

Here are some additional websites and books that can help you in your planning or during your hike.

 

A Temporary Change of Address: Cloud Rider's Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike

An excellent book written by Tim Potter (Cloud Rider). He takes you along his journey with a daily record in words and pictures. It’s about the preparation, the hike, and wide variety of reflections.

Half Mile Maps & App

Probably the best resource for good free accurate yearly updated trail maps, that you can download as a pdf and print. His app is also the best free and accurate app for the entire trail.

Guthook App

A paid app but with a lot of extra information compared to the half-mile app. This is the app to use.

Yogi's PCT handbook

This book is like a Lonely Planet for the PCT. It has tons of information on resupply towns etc.

Craig's PCT planner

A great free website planner for all your resupply points.

PCT Water Report

Where can I find water in the desert sections? This site has all the answers. And it is real time updated by hikers on the trail.
