Hike Your Own PCT Hike – PCTA Fundraiser
April 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us, along with REI Eugene and Pacific Crest Trail Association, at WildCraft Cider Works to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Trail Systems Act and the Pacific Crest Trail. Kick back and sip a tasty cider while Eli Boschetto, author of Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon, shares tips and information to help you start planning a PCT hike of your own—on your own terms. Eli will be breaking down the Oregon portion of the PCT into easily-accessible sections that can be hiked in as little as a few days, to longer portions of a week or more—all at your own pace.
If you’re new to long-distance hiking, Eli will be sharing tips for choosing the right gear, food management on trail and in camp (including resupply strategies), trail safety and PCT hiking best practices. The program will also include an update on the condition of the PCT in Oregon following the devastating fires of 2017, and what hikers should expect on trail in 2018.
If hiking a portion of the PCT is on your to-do list this year, this is a must-attend event. Plus, all attendees can enter for an awesome Montbell gear giveaway, and $1 of every Wildcraft cider will go toward the PCTA!
Want to hike the Pacific Crest Trail on your own terms AND support the PCTA while sipping cider? Join PCT: Oregon guidebook author Eli Boschetto for an info-packed session of trail and planning tips.
