We are a hiking and backpacking group focused on the Pacific Crest Trail.  We're fast becoming a very active Meetup focused on light and safe travel in the wilderness. We have interesting meetings and plans for brief, overnight hikes as well as for more ambitious treks. We'll learn new skills, hone current ones and develop a network of people you'd trust with your life in the backcountry. We are very open to new trip ideas, lightweight, and ultralightweight backpacking techniques, and the equipment available at home and in the marketplace. We welcome newcomers as well as experienced "outdoorspeople" of all ages, as long as you're reasonably self-sufficient.  We require that any members attending overnight hikes must be currently certified in CPR and at least basic first aid.  We will go to the mountains, the deserts, in all kinds of conditions, so bring your common sense and a good attitude! We are looking forward to meeting you!

We're 562 PCT'ers
