If you want bare-bones information about the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail without all the long, detailed descriptions, the Pacific Crest Trail Data Book is exactly what you're looking for. Based on data from the three comprehensive Wilderness Press guidebooks to the PCT, this book is filled with convenient, easy-to-read, at-a-glance tables. Compact and lightweight, with trail-tested features, it's handy both on and off the trail. Use it for pre-trip planning for resupply stops; setting daily on-the-trail mileage goals by anticipating campsites, water sources, trail gradient, and facilities; and easily calculating distances between any two points on the trail. Whether you're north- or south-bound, whether you're hiking the entire PCT or just sections of it, the first step of your journey begins with this book.
