The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) spans 2,600 miles from the U.S. border at Campo, Mexico to Canada, wandering through desert, High Sierra pinnacles, rugged Cascade mountain ranges and remote meadows. Thru-hikers may encounter snow in the high mountains and swift-moving streams to ford, making a PCT journey both exhilarating and challenging. Yogi’s planning books are highly recommended (http://www.yogisbooks.com.)

I hiked this as a thru hike in 2007 & a little more than half in 2006, then the rest in 2008 but I didn’t do journals either of those years So I have done it twice but only once as a thru hike.
This is a great trail to do as a first time thru hike. You can view the journal below:
