There are several sections of the PCT that are accessible for day hikes. Cutthroat Pass trail starts on the N.side of Rainy Pass at a trailhead with parking. This trail takes you to the Cutthroat Pass in approx. 5 miles. On the south side of the highway, Maple Pass Trail loop affords wonderful vistas in a 6-7 mile loop with... More

Okay, I only took a picture at the sign but I will come back to hike this portion to add to the other sections I've backpacked.

The little mountain towns of Mazama and Winthrop, WA are great places to stock up or unwind after hiking on the reknown Pacific Crest Trail. Harts Pass is easy access from the general store in Mazama. The road to the pass is spicy. Camping at the pass is great. I prefer the treed campsites right at the pass but there... More

If you go to Hart's Pass you can hike along the PCT on either the Grasshopper Pass trail or the Windy Pass trail. Both are great hikes. I particularly like the Grasshopper hike in the fall when the larch trees are turning yellow. This hike is 11 miles round trip. The road up to Hart's Pass is rough but well... More

We hike the PCT really early in the season at the trail head on snoqualmie pass. There was still plenty of snow covering the trail and even more as we got higher in elevation, eventually we started drifting on and off the trail. Our 8 mile intended journey turned into a 5 mile 9 hour hike. We didn't reach our... More

I've only hiked a few sections of the PCT - Rainy Pass to Canada and again around the Harts Pass area. The trail is very well maintained. There are trail crews out there every Spring clearing blow downs, re-routing wash-outs where necessary and the grade is usually moderate - at least in my experience. Because the trail was originally a... More
