The Trek’s PCT Bloggers You Should Be Following on Instagram

Each new thru-hiking season, The Trek enlists a squad of hiker trash to share their stories with us as they crush trail miles between Mexico and Canada. We have selected a set of bloggers from this squadron that will deliver quality images and trail descriptions during their journey. Follow along to live vicariously, send positive vibes, track progress, and, hopefully, gain inspiration for a hike of your own.

During their treks, our bloggers will be using #TrekThePCT and #TheTrek to tag their posts on Instagram. Be sure to keep an eye on these hashtags as well as give our main pages a follow via @pacificcrest.trail and

In all their hiker trashy glory, our featured PCT bloggers:

Brandon Araujo – @brandonaventures

Elysha Agne – @eaagne2

Lance Goehring – @thinkinghiker

Maggie Slepian – @maggie_slepian

My body is covered in new scars, I haven’t had a proper shower in days, and I can’t seem to stop smiling
