Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in Southern California and Beyond

One of the most storied trails in the United States, the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trial (PCT) runs through the San Gabriel Mountains on its 2,650 mile route from Mexico to Canada. 

Join us for a great program about the PCT presented by speaker and tour guide Barney “Scout” Mann who will provide many insider tips on how you can hike the entire trail in five months or explore scenic sections on much shorter hikes in the San Gabriel Mountains or the Sierras.  Barney is chairman of the board of the Pacific Crest Trail Association, and he and his wife completed a thru-hike of all 2,650 miles in 2007.  Barney’s writings often appear in the Communicator and Backpacker Magazine and he is hard at work on a book about the Pacific Crest Trail.

A social reception starts at 7 p.m. and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.  The program is free and open to the public. For more information please contact Erik Counseller [masked] or Don Bremner at [masked]
Directions to Eaton Canyon:
From the 210 Freeway in Pasadena, take the Altadena Drive exit (if westbound on the 210, take the Sierra Madre Blvd. off ramp and at the bottom go west another few blocks to Altadena Drive), drive north toward the mountains about a mile, and 500 feet after crossing New York Drive, turn right into Eaton Canyon Park. The Nature Center is on the left from the parking area.
