This Bro Hiked The 2,650-Mile Pacific Crest Trail In Under Six Months

by 3 years ago


Last year this bro embarked on the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail that spans from Mexico on up to Canada. It took just under six months from the time he left his home in Athens, Georgia until the time he finished hiking one of the most grueling trails in the world.

The Pacific Crest Trail is often referred to as just ‘PCT’, as it is in this video. So if ‘PCT’ rings a bell but ‘Pacific Crest Trail’ doesn’t, that’s why. In total, the PCT is a 2,663 mile long trail running from the United States border with Mexico to the U.S. border with Canada. The PCT features an almost unfathomable 420,880-foot elevation change throughout the course of the trail, and it takes most advanced hikers somewhere between 5 to 8 months to complete the arduous trek.

Here’s this bro’s story about completing the Pacific Crest Trail, with 5.5 months of hiking, and learning to play the ukulele along the way:
