Happy Fall! The Autumnal equinox has come and gone, ushering in cooler temperatures, relief from forest fires, and changing leaves. Fall also brings the end of a successful 2015 thru-hiking season.
It was definitely a trying year - with forest fires shutting down many sections of the trail in Montana, Idaho and Washington. Our community of land management agencies, friends, and supporters rallied together to provide shelter, transportation and companionship for the many thru-hikers that hiked the trial this summer. Thank you for all that you do!
The Pacific Northwest Trail Association would like to extend congratulations to all of those thru-hikers that completed the Pacific Northwest trail this year. No matter your direction, route or how long you took to hike, a journey on the PNT will stay with you for the rest of your life! We hope it challenged you, broadened your horizons, and inspired you to stay involved in the trail community.
We want to recognize your accomplishment! If you haven't yet already, be sure to fill out the form on the
1,200 milers page
for a free PNT patch and our end of hike surveys.
If you know of a thru-hiker that completed the trail, be sure to share this email with them!
