Final PCT Stats

We’ve reached Mammoth Lake and completed our through section hike from Cascade Locks at the top of Oregon to central California. Emotions of extreme tiredness, sadness and euphoria at completing what we’d set out to do pervade every non-hiking moment as we decompress before returning to LA.

  • Walked 1,025 miles (536)
  • Seen 69 deer (34) with a young stag on our last day
  • Forded 5 rivers (2)
  • Seen 8 snakes (4)
  • Seen 3 bears
  • Almost trod on 1 rattle snake 
  • Passed 898 (751) other hikers of which:
  • 18 had dogs (17)
  • 8 were on horses (8)
  • 1 was barefoot (1)
  • 3 were wearing kilts (3)
  • 17 were playing music from speakers (15)
  • 97 were listening to headphones (88)
  • 54 were heading southbound (31)
