A Note on using online resources for Planning your Hike.
With the breakout of COVID 19, many services are either not available this year or offered on a very limited basis. If the PCT reopens the trail, please contact the services in advance to make sure they are operational. This is a good idea for any season. Hikers who blog or post about their hike on a particular year will not have accurate information for later seasons. Small trail towns are fluid, people come and go. Professional publications such as Yogi’s trail guides are more reliable. She not only contacts services every year to verify they are operational, but posts updates online if there are sudden or unexpected changes.
