Thru-Hike The Pacific Crest Trail in Seven Minutes

Thru-hik­ing the Pacif­ic Crest Trail is a com­mit­ment. It’s tough to jus­ti­fy tak­ing five months off from work, from fam­i­ly, and from friends to do noth­ing else but walk. Some­times we need a fire beneath us to drum up the courage to take that first step, when all the fears and uncer­tain­ties are just as real as any­thing you’ve expe­ri­enced on the adven­ture yet.

This video can be that fire.

It gives you a glimpse into the world of the PCT. Start­ing at the Mex­i­can bor­der you see the float­ing cam­era move through the chap­ar­ral of south­ern Cal­i­for­nia, into the gran­ite Sier­ras, past the vol­canic Cas­cades, and into the North­ern Cas­cades of Wash­ing­ton all under sev­en minutes.

It’s a jour­ney well worth tak­ing to get you primed for the real thing.
