Long distance trails seems to pop up on my radar every few months. This week I learned about the “Coast to Crest Trail” in Northern California and Southern Oregon. It will go from Redwood National Park to Crater Lake National Park, using the PCT from Seiad Valley north. From a quick glance at their website, it looks like the trail is mostly based off of the historic Kelsey Pack Trail and the PCT. It was started with an MOU in 1992 and then stalled out. It seems like it might still have some level of official support.
Someone should email them and find out if it has been thru-ed, and if not, whether it can legally be hiked at this point. I think it can be. Then go hike it. Who wants a “first”? [EDIT: see Coniferman’s comment below. He’s done it :)]
