Where: Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) Southbound from Harts Pass to Rainy Pass. For trail maps and trail profile see www.pctmap.net Washington section L and the Maps section of the More Details page.

When: August 13-17, 2018

How Far: Approximately 32 miles We will average 6.5 miles per day with approximately 5000 feet of total elevation gain ( 5 days hiking).

Who: We are presently recruiting for 2018 participants (Parkinson’s hikers, support hikers and trail Angels).  If interested, please sign up on our Contact Page. Support hikers are expected to assist the Parkies when needed. The Parkinson’s people should be fully capable of making the trip on their own but the disease carries with it a fair amount of uncertainty as to what debilitating motor symptoms and non-motor symptoms may crop up.  That is why we need the support hikers for carrying a little extra, setting up camp, filtering water and guiding people across difficult trail sections, etc.

How: We will be hiking Southbound on the PCT, starting at Harts Pass to Glacier Pass, Methow Pass, Cutthroat Pass to Rainy Pass.

Llamas: Three llamas will carry approximately 25 lbs for each Parkie hiker and community gear

Personal Gear: Parkies will hike with a smaller day pack (10-20 lbs). Support hikers will   be carrying a full pack with resupply at Stehekin.

Community Gear: May include Rollo chairs, fly tarp, comprehensive first aid kit, inReach Explorer, radios, and water pump.

  • Sunday , August 12, 2018. Travel to camp, meet llamas, pre-pack
  • Monday, August 13, 9 am start at Harts Pass, camp along trail for 4 nights
  • Friday August 17, 1-2:00 pm, finish at Rainy Pass and celebrate and potluck lunch
