Pacific Crest Trail & Beyond Lightweight Backpackers/Hikers Pages

We are a hiking and backpacking group focused on the Pacific Crest Trail, but also hike other California and beyond destinations. We want to help outdoor enthusiasts increase their knowledge and enjoyment of the outdoors and their equipment through education and awesome trips with an emphasis on ultralight and leave no trace principles and methodology.

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 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!
