Join REI and the Pacific Crest Trail Association at Wildcraft for this presentation and fundraiser. The Pacific Crest Trail is the ultimate hiking trail. Aptly named, it follows the crests of the western coast of the United States and ranges in terrain from high deserts to mountain peaks. REI staff member Ben Larson had an experience of a lifetime and hiked the 500 mile Oregon section, where he learned the intricacies of long distance backpacking including gear selection, meal preparation, footwear, and trail safety. Join him on a virtual tour of his life changing hike to see what the trail has to offer. Don’t forget that every tasty cider you buy means Wildcraft donates $1 to the Pacific Crest Trail Association!
