I am always making adjustments but here is how it stands with 3 weeks to start:
“There is an intense but simple thrill in setting off in the morning on a mountain trail, knowing that everything you need is on your back. It is a confidence in having left the inessentials behind and of entering a world of natural beauty that has not been violated, where money has no value, and possessions are a dead weight. The person with the fewest possessions is the freest.”
One thought on “PCT Gear List”
Thank you for writing! I’m 63 next month and starting section hiking the PCT. Will complete by 2028 at 200 miles per year.
