Where: Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) southbound from Rainy Pass to Suiattle River.  For trail maps and trail profile see Washington section K and the Maps section of the More Details page.

When: August 26-September 3, 2017.

How Far: We will average 7 miles per day with approximately 5000 feet of total elevation gain and a total of 58 miles.

Who: We are presently recruiting for 2018 participants (Parkinson’s and non-Parkinson’s support hikers and trail Angels).  If interested, please sign up on our Contact Page. Non-Parkies are expected to support the Parkies when needed. The Parkinson’s people should be fully capable 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 South bound on the Pacific Crest Trail starting at Rainy Pass with a layover day at Stehekin. On day 5 and 6 we will hike up to Suiattle pass and have a second layover day.  On day 8 and 9 we will hike out to the Suiattle River for our finish celebration.

Personal Gear: Participants will be carrying their own packs with resupply at Stehekin.

Community Gear: May include Rollo chairs, 2-3 Rollo tables, fly tarp, comprehensive first aid kit and water pump.
