Oregon Wild Wednesday Portland: Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (Oregon)

Join Oregon Wild at Base Camp Brewing Co. for a pint and some local food cart fare for this special Oregon Wild event. 

Thinking about hiking some or all of the Pacific Crest Trail in Oregon? Join Oregon Wild and guidebook author Eli Boschetto at Base Camp Brewing Company in Portland for an evening of inspiring imagery and trail beta to help you start planning your own PCT adventure.

Eli breaks down the state's 455 miles of PCT into manageable sections—each with stunning routes that can be hiked in a long weekend, a week or more. Details include trail accessibility, choosing campsites, finding water and getting the right permits for hiking from the rolling grasslands of the Soda Mountain Wilderness to the volcanic plains of the Central Cascades to the doorstep of Oregon's tallest peak, Mount Hood. Bring your questions, your appetite for adventure, and your thirst for great, local beer! Plus, attendees can enter to win a Granite Gear ultralight backpack!

In addition to Eli's presentation, learn more about Oregon Wild’s current efforts to protect wild places and public lands across the state, and how we help connect people to the great outdoors.
