This Week’s Top Instagram Posts from the #PacificCrestTrail

While it may not be thru-hiking season, there are still some lucky people out on the #PacificCrestTrail! Unfortunately, if you are reading this, you’re probably not one of those few people making the trek. But that means that hopefully you’re preparing to take it on later this hiking season!

If you’d like to be featured, we search Instagram for great photos with the hashtag #PacificCrestTrail, #PCT and #PacificCrestTrials (our personal favorite) and select a few standouts each week for your viewing pleasure.
