  • Yogi’s PCT Handbook, November 2019 edition.

    430 pages, basically a textbook on hiking the PCT.  Trail legends and veterans offer PCT hiking advice:

    “Yogi” Jackie McDonnell (Double-Triple Crowner with 20,000 miles)
    “BINK” Scott Williamson (Triple Crowner with 46,000 PCT miles)
    “Anish” Heather Anderson (Double-Triple Crowner, with fastest known times on PCT, AT, AZT)
    “Scrub” Christopher Burke (AT and PCT hiker)
    “Hiker Box Special” Michael Henrick (PCT hiker)

    13-time PCT thru-hiker Scott Williamson says:  “Having done the PCT numerous times now, I cannot think of anything I would add to this book if it were my creation.  Back on my first PCT hike in 1992, I used the Wilderness Press guides and a AAA road map to plan my PCT hike.  I couldn’t even locate anyone who had hiked the trail.  I really had very little to go off of.  I would have paid $250 for Yogi’s book.  It is still the most comprehensive and useful single source of material for planning any PCT hike that is available, it is worth its weight in gold!”

    DETAILS

    This is the book you’ve been looking for.  The thought of planning and completing a Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike can be overwhelming.  There’s so much to learn:  how to resupply, what shoes/gear to buy, how to survive in the desert and the snow, what Guidebooks to purchase, etc.  Yogi’s Pacific Crest Trail Handbook answers all these questions  .  .  .  and more.

    This valuable planning and hiking resource is written by hikers for hikers.  It takes the confusion out of pre-hike planning and on-trail logistics.  It is a collection of different opinions from people who have thru-hiked the PCT.  We’ve been where you’re going.  We’ve done what you’re about to do.  This is the stuff we wish we knew before we thru-hiked.

    The first half (144 pages) is a collection of tips from previous PCT thru-hikers on a variety of hiking topics such as:

    • Maps and Guidebooks
    • Clothing
    • Footwear
    • Packs
    • Sleep Systems
    • Ultralight Hiking
    • Desert Advice
    • Sierra Advice
    • Resupply
    • Travel to/from the Start/Finish of the Trail

    The second half (272 pages) is the Trail Tips and Town Guide.  Mileage matches Halfmile’s 2018 mileage.

    TOWNS: Valuable information for 100+ hiker stops (near-trail stores/towns/Resorts/Trail Angels) including:

    • How to get to/from each resupply location
    • Town Maps
    • Maildrop Information
    • Exactly what each town/resort has for resupply, lodging, restaurants, ATM, internet, fuel, shower, etc.

    TRAIL: 

    • Historical data of every water source from Campo to Kennedy Meadows (“the desert”)
    • Historical data of all critical water sources from Kennedy Meadows to Canada
    • Where to go at confusing trail junctions
    • Sierra-specific information: tips for crossing the passes, bear box locations, canister-required areas, Sierra Public Bus information
    • Detour information
    • The best places to eat
    • Hiker-friendly motels
    • 13-time PCT thru-hiker Scott Williamson has contributed his comments regarding water availability and places few people know about.
  • Yogi’s Continental Divide Trail Handbook   © February 2019

    Ah, yes……….The Continental Divide Trail. Take every hike you’ve ever done, mix those experiences up, make everything bigger and better, and you’ve got a Continental Divide Trail hike. Seriously, it’s the most rewarding hike you’ll experience.

    “Yogi’s Continental Divide Trail Handbook” guides the experienced hiker through planning a CDT thru-hike. Like the PCT Handbook, the CDT Handbook has two distinct sections: a section for planning, and a section for on the trail. The main difference for the CDT book is that the on-trail section is strictly a Town Guide. The nature of the CDT does not allow for all the little trail-specific information like you saw in the PCT book. No two hikers walk the same CDT, so trail tips would not apply.  The CDT book is paginated in southbound order, yet simple to use for a northbound hike.

    In keeping with the conversational approach of the PCT book, the CDT book is presented with a little help from my friends. Several CDT hikers contributed their thoughts to both the Planning and Town Guide sections of the book. Different opinions on many topics are presented by several Triple Crown hikers.

    There are two sections to the Handbook
    The Planning Guide section (170 pages) is a collection of tips from previous thru-hikers on a variety of hiking topics: Comparisons PCT vs CDT, Wildlife, Trail Community, Route Choices, Transportation, Maps and Apps, Permits and Identification, Navigation, Gear Choices, Clothing and Footwear, Desert Hiking Advice, Snow Hiking Advice, Trail Town Information, Advice on Trail Food, Mail Drops and Resupply.

    The Town Guide section (222 pages) has detailed information for trail towns and resorts including:  ● Distance between resupply locations ● Ley Map, Bear Creek Map, and CDTC Map location for each town/resort ● How to get to/from each town/resort ● Town Maps ● Maildrop Information ● Exactly what each town/resort has for resupply, lodging, restaurants, ATM, phone, internet, fuel, shower, etc.

    Enjoy your hike on the Divide! As my buddy d-low says, Embrace the Brutality!

     

  • The United States has numerous long distance trails but three trails have risen to the top of the consciousness of the hiking community. These are the Appalachian Trail at 2,200 miles, the Pacific Crest Trail at 2,700 miles and the Contental Divide Trail at 3,100 miles. Added together these three trails cover almost 8,000 miles of the most rugged and remote landscapes in the country. The Triple Crown of Hiking includes these three iconic trails in a decorative gift box that is perfect for the hiker in your life. These three maps can be displayed either separately or together as a way to motive you to get outside and start your next long distance trail experience.

    The map is packaged in a full color box that is perfect for gift giving. The box includes details about the map with its size and scale as well as a large section of the map that displays the cartography found inside.
