Pacific Crest Trail Program Offered
The Pacific Crest Trail Association will hold a free showing of “America’s Wild Places: The Pacific Crest Trail” at 7 p.m. Thursday,
The PCT enters Klamath County from the south near Clover Creek Road, and runs for about 150 miles along the crest of the Cascade Mountain Range before leaving the county near Willamette Pass. The PCT passes through Crater Lake National Park, as well as six other national parks and 26 national forests. In Klamath County the trail traverses the Sky Lakes, Mount Thielsen and Diamond Peak wilderness areas.
Ian Nelson, a trail association employee who serves Northern California and Southern Oregon, will discuss opportunities for people to hike on the trail, as well as volunteer to help maintain the trail.
Admission is open to anyone interested. The showing will be held in the museum’s public meeting room, with entry off Spring Street.
