I need to do some server upgrades, hence pctplanner will be offline at 1:30pm Saturday September 10th PDT. It shouldn't take long
Welcome to Craig's PCT Planner
The Pacific Crest Trail is a 2,665 mile (or so) long hiking trail from Mexico to Canada, located in the states of California, Oregon, and Washington. If you would like more information on the PCT itself, check out the Pacific Crest Trail Association's homepage.

Planning for a PCT hike is a lot of work and the actual planning of a PCT hiking schedule can be time consuming. The goal of this program is to simplify the planning process by:
  • Choosing resupply locations
  • Determining how many days of food are needed between resupply points
  • Projecting arrival dates at each resupply location
  • Adjusting your hiking time based on terrain
  • Bring out the middle-manager in all of us with detailed hiking statistics!

This program bases its calculations from trail data derived from the 2005 PCT Data book and Halfmile's PCT Trail Notes (for the resupply locations).

Please note: I have done my best to fix all bugs and known errors with this program. The intent of this program is to provide a tool for estimating your hiking time and not a substitute for careful planning of a PCT hike. Although I've done my best to ensure that this program works correctly, I cannot guarantee that the distances/times this program gives you will be 100% accurate.

If you have any questions or comments please drop me a message.
