BRAND NEW National Geographic TI Topo Pacific Crest Trail: CA Sierra Nevada North (Sierra Buttes to Devil's Postpile) Topographic Map Guide.
• Waterproof • Tear-Resistant • Topographic Map Guide
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) mapped in the Sierra Nevada North Topographic Map Guide travels through subalpine forests and volcanic rock formations, staying close to the Sierra Crest. The John Muir Trail coincides with the PCT for 160 miles, splitting west from the PCT at Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park. 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. Highlights of this section include Yosemite National Park, Devils Postpile National Monument, and Ansel Adams, Carson-Iceberg, Emigrant, Mokelumne, Hoover, Granite Chief, and Desolation wilderness areas.
The PCT spans 2,650 miles from the Canadian border, through Washington, Oregon, and California to the southern terminus on 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. Each page is centered on the PCT and overlaps with the adjacent pages so there is little chance of getting lost. Along the bottom of each page is a trail profile that shows the distance between shelters, camping areas, and trail access points. 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 information, camping options, and much more.
