Palisade Lakes, Mather Pass - by Kelly The Pacific Crest Trail is one of the most spectacular and challenging long distance trails the US has to offer. This trail takes you to all the famous mountain ranges of California, Oregon and Washington.

Not only its length is dazzling – 2654 miles (4271 km), the alpine terrain makes hard walking. Nevertheless, some 100 to 200 fit thru-hikers manage each year to complete the trip from end to end. When they finish, they have climbed some 300,000 feet, or 90,000 meters, in six months time. Highest point is Forester Pass, 13,153 feet (4009 m), in the Sierra Nevada.
