Don't know if this will be much help, but here goes: Prior to the
Cleveland National Forest (I believe the first administrative area you enter
on the PCT) instituting, as a test program in four (?) U.S.F.S. areas in So.
Cal, a recreation fee, there were no fees to hike the trail.
You may even be exempt from that fee, considering the nature of the hike.
I'd give them a call. The National Park Service began charging backcountry
overnight fees in some NPS areas, but I believe none of them are on the PCT
route. My best guess is that you MIGHT incur a minimal processing fee for
the permit(s). The permit process may have changed, but when I did the hike
in '82, I believe Cleveland National Forest's permit got me all the way
through California. I think I had to send-off for a permit in the first
entering park in Oregon, and Washington was a sign-in-at-entry program (It
might have been the other way around for Oregon and Washington). In general
terms, the way it works, is one permit will get you through multiple
administrative areas, during a contiguous hike. Other's may have more
