The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) mapped in the Sierra Nevada South Topographic Map Guide travels through conifer forests, meadows, and dry mountain ridges.

The high Sierra hiking season typically lasts from mid-June through September. However, heavy snow can begin as early as October and linger until early July. The highest point on the PCT, Forester Pass (13,160 feet), will be found in the southern Sierra Nevada mountains on the boundary between Sequoia and King Canyon National Parks.The PCT spans 2,650 miles from the Canadian border, through Washington, Oregon, and California to the southern terminus at the Mexican border. The famous trail crosses some of the most wild and scenic landscapes of the western U.S., including six national parks, 25 national forests, 48 wilderness areas, the volcanic Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest, the snowcapped Sierra Nevada, and the Mojave and Sonoran deserts.Each PCT Topographic Map Guide includes detailed topographic maps at a scale of almost 1 inch = 1 mile.

The map and trail profile provide a step by step visual guide to hiking the trail, mile by rugged mile. The Topographic Map Guide is built for all levels of hiking enthusiasts, from the day tripper to the multi month ‘thru-hiker’. The front pages of the printed Topographic Map Guide include resupply locations, health and safety information, and much more.More convenient and easier to use than folded maps, but just as compact and lightweight, National Geographics Topographic Map Guide booklets are printed on Backcountry Tough waterproof, tear-resistant paper with stainless steel staples.
