The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a 4,279 km long hiking trail in the Western United States. The trail's southern terminus is on the U.S. border with Mexico, just south of Campo, California, and its northern terminus at the Canada–US border on the edge of Manning Park in British Columbia. The PCT elevation ranges from just above sea level at the Oregon–Washington border to 13,153 feet (4,009 m) at Forester Pass in the Sierra Nevada. The trail ranges in environments including: desert, old-growth forest, the High Sierra, temperate rainforest, glacier, and alpine tundra.
Board member, Tim Brown, is attempting the hike to raise money for the Canadian Paraplegic Association – NS. He will start on the Mexican border outside of Campo, California and hike as far as possible north towards Canada.
