I have always wanted to try the CA portion of the PCT on horeback and would like to do it with someone rather than by myself. How do I contact someone who has either done it before or would be interested in tackling it?
A good place to start might be the Facebook group “All PCT Equestrians”. This page if for equestrians that have ridden or plan to ride the PCT and other interested parties. While there are hiker pages out there, and they are valuable, there are specific concerns a rider has. Discussions on packing, trail conditions, where to meet your trailer, etc. are all topics that we can assist each other with.
Awesome blog, you’ve convinced me to thru horse hike the pct instead of the adt next year.
Peter, are you planning on hiking or riding?
I had a friend who did the PCT in 1971, had a marvelous adventure. This was in the days before digital film, so didn’t get to see many of his pictures, but loved to hear his stories. Unfortunately he passed away in the mid eighties in an avalanche outside Lake Tahoe, but died doing what he loved. Thanks for sharing your adventure.
I’m sorry to hear of your friend.
