Does anyone know if there are any elevation profiles available for the
WA/OR sections of the PCT?
I seem to recall a few years back someone had posted them on the web, but I
can't seem to locate them anymore. I've always found them to be helpful in
planning on how long a day really "feels" as opposed to just how many miles
The PCTA is publishing a PCT Data Book which, in addition to listing the
mileages between every landmark (everything in parenthesis in the guidebooks),
includes 5 elevation profiles: southern, central, and northern California,
Oregon, and Washington. It also includes the addresses and phone numbers of
re-supply points, a list of average California snow depths recorded at 9
points on or near the PCT since 1930, and more. This 108-page reference tool
was compiled by 1996 PCT thru-hiker, Ben Go, and just went to press yesterday.
It should be available for sale from the PCT Store within a month for the
bargain basement price of $5.00 (PCTA members receive a 10% discount). You
won't want to hit the trail without it!
Joe at the PCTA office
