Book Launch: Philip Kramer "Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail" 7pm Free

Meet the authur Philip Kramer!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the National Trail Systems Act and the establishment of the Pacific Crest Trail. Come celebrate with Philip Kramer, author and photographer of Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California, as he presents a brief breakdown of the PCT, the highlights of over 740 miles of PCT in Northern California, and relates his years of experience as both a thru-hiker and a section-hiker. The presentation will feature Kramer’s gorgeous photographs, stories of the unexpected, and a discussion period to address individual questions. Whether you’re actively planning a PCT hike, or just starting to dream, this event will inspire and inform your personal adventure goals.

Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail has never been more popular, but even though “thru-hikers” get all the buzz, many thousands more hikers each year will enjoy this 2,000-mile trail in sections. The comprehensive four-volume Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail set of guidebooks from Mountaineers Books addresses both through and section hikers, and is now complete with the release of the new Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California guidebook. The complete set includes Southern California, Northern California, Oregon, and Washington volumes and is the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available for PCT hikers.

Not many of us can find a free four months to traverse the entire PCT, so Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California—like the other three books in the set—aims to provide section hikers with all of the information that they need in a gorgeous format that they will return to again and again. This book will help locals and traveling adventurers alike find great outings for a week or a weekend trip on this world-renowned trail.
