The Pacific Crest Trail:

Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail  

 

Barney Scout Mann will present The Pacific Crest Trail: Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail, which is a book that he co-authored and was published by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and that was released on Oct. 11.
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) runs through 48 wilderness areas and six national parks.  The PCT is a continuous footpath from the Mexican border to the Canadian border by traveling through California, Oregon and Washington.
Barney will tell how this 2,650-mile trail from Mexico to Canada came to be. It’s a tale about the dedication of many volunteers and government land managers, as well as political will and just plain luck.
