All the trails I know, the PCT is the one with the greatest preference for walking in one direction-from South to North.   Here are the disadvantages and advantages for walking South:
1) topography causes going South can expect much much more. The General (which varies from year to year for two weeks and rarely more) that Canada start at North or South of the Sierra (southern-the southern tip, which is in the desert "the bottleneck" walking North Sierra mountains, 700 miles north of them Mexico) is to begin in mid-June. Per year (average) one can expect at first several miles of walking in the snow (say around five or less) walk north, that is topogafia of transitions that you find snow mainly in the northern end, and valleys where the snow melts. If you start from Canada, the trail is on the range all the time, so you can expect 50-100 miles of snowshoeing. [Note that amount of snow in June changes drastically from year to year depending on weather conditions]
Walk south) alone, because there is almost no going South.
3) shorter days.
There are a few additional disadvantages), but theycan't getRooney40562.6602314815

Benefits of walking South:
Mmmmmmm ...
Mmmmmmm ...

Ability to show you did something that few do every year.

Once a decade or more snow conditions create a preference for walking. For example, this happened on Mar 05 when North features an indoor waterfall fell less than half the normal amount of snow in the South almost twice. And in the same year a lot of people went south.

That's not practical.   I really find it hard to see how you can finish the first PCT in August. The only ones that start so they moves fast writer trying to do yoyo, and then Mexico, at the Canadian border, and going to Mexico again. And they can't finish the yoyo.    There's nothing I can do about two-thirds what PCT was covered with snow sometime in October (and in some years even in late September). Even more flexibility in skipping a section to help you unless you went super fast who can do for three months. And that's something only purple can/want only.

The longer you can only begin in August and be with a decent chance to finish is apalch trail, which is in my opinion far less beautiful what PCT despite beginning in August will give you the opportunity to see the casting and more winter than summer.

I think you should help her choose a section of trail from August onwards from North to South, maybe a couple of enough to be good, Ronnie?

Well I also have option to arrive in mid-June which gives me two months.

My original plan was to start in the Rockies in Canada to enter the us and the PCT, but it also creates problems of border. So I can also start the track in mid-June about whenever I plan to fly. So if I give up the Canadian Rocky Mountains have no problem already start in Mexico and then a new question. What I expected problems relatively late start 20th Governor in June.

Thank you

Ok... Don't know if that's what they're looking for, but in this case Canada start actually makes sense (in fact you'll have to start from the USA and the Canadian border because of the growing problem of the Canadian border zone border, he gets in trouble for Americans even today and even more abroad).   In this case, the Canadian border South as possible for three months until somewhere in Northern California, enjoy optimal weather, monthly (when most of the THRUHIKERS have to do Washington in September when many times wet and disgusting some of the time).

The Canadian Rocky Mountains? You talk about the GREAT DIVIDE TRAIL. I checked about this case last week. Mid-June is borderline guys as well, especially in the North.

June 20 date is almost ideal to start walking South with snow cover. As I mentioned the amount of snow critically variable from year to year, so you can't say for sure. Be aware that it will take three days to reach the Canadian border if you start any chance (a certain foreign citizen can get a permit to enter the us not through a border-I know it's possible to Americans and Canadians, the problem it's so rare that even a border in isn't American knows that if you want the only station I know fluently reconfiguration (in Northern Minnesota where people do buy Canada trips to the u.s. and should be reported within 24 hours). But it's not worth all the headache and lay two days walk. I think if you want to be able to take part in a road parallel to the PCT so that you don't have to repeat after you. Anyway the Americans they are closest highways, so need to get hitched or problematic.

Except for the arrival (I think you can solve if you want using the track Angels live in Seattle) and snow (can be choose to use snowshoes in certain conditions, it was an interesting experience) the biggest problem you taic trip is solitude. You have plenty of chances to be alone most of the way, even if you start with a friend, my experience of friends above 50 percent to break up somewhere along the way. In addition there will be under pressure to end the Sierra before snow will block your way.

On the other hand, it's not impossible. Check the forums (PCT-L) and maybe join someone that starts around this date. This way you may also find a ride ...

Oh and one last idea.   If you are looking to do in that area three months tour to check out the PACIFIC NORTHWEST TRAIL (PNT
The physical from the Rocky Mountains in the USA Canada border to the Pacific.   The trail is physically difficult for United, with very few people (less than 10 do the same, but the number is growing), an unmarked route partially exists (dirt etc) but with stunning views and desolation you won't find in any other path.


Okay, enough for Saddam. Good luck with that.

Look for a clerk that you know what you're talking about.

According to the question I understand that you track the visa has already moved.

The clerk at the entrance is truly omnipotent. Is the proven ability to stay. Like my predecessors, I think that if you tell the truth, look at credit card cash amount, and a program that walk (for sites) do have problems.

If you can explain where you come, it will only help you to prove it.

It is important to try to show that you have room for the first night-try to make such a place and it helps.

Well in terms of ability never got to do a long trip but we decided we're not going to finish or "run" the route we want to enjoy it as much as we can in the time we have. I can't extend several miles done today but realized it was a very well maintained which can alleviate this it the first time. I'd like visitors in addition to recommendation of where we should start as well some difficulty and whether reasons better or to do the good thing of this experience and logistics

Thank you

Choose what Eyal said the specific date for June very critical. Sierra places covered with snow in early June, will be in the end. The fit is also critical. Southern Sierra mountains are the hardest thing, partly because of the topography, partly because of the need to take plenty of food and because of the height. I mean you have to be in great shape before you start.


Here's an idea.
Start at the northern end of the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION (John Muir tariel, which is a path in the Sierras that largely overlapped except for the northern part of PCT). The trail begins in Yosemite where I think I can be reached by public transportation from San Francisco (you'll have to check, not close to it). The lowest section is relatively easy and most of the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION. In a few days will reach where it connects with the PCT, and then go south to where the Lamb over JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION (highest peak in the continental u.s.). So many benefits of walking the walk northward by low height, so you have more time to acclimatize to the altitude (crucial if you are coming from sea level). There are also many more tispok options during the first week (more on next = for not more than half a day's walk as the southern section). That way you can carry a backpack is easier, and learn for yourself what you like to eat on the trail.

After you reach the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION and decide to continue, you can hitchhike (not hard road) North and continue North on the PCT than MEDOWS TOLOMNE (where you started the PCT South). At this point would be with the Lakers for the Crown of the PCT instead. Continue North until you want/enjoy.   Hypothetically if you arrive to Canada in September you can even skip South again and start to go south of the southern Sierra, can certainly do the desert in November.

The main drawback in this way is the lack of continuity (double tadlgo) that some people really don't like. And you go one section with another section disappear. Another drawback of problematic water caches in the southern part (that make them season almost, but with good communication with Angels track can ensure that leave you). Another drawback is shorter days in the desert in the fall (but it is not so critical because a lot of people do the night walks where the heat anyway, so it could even be an advantage).

The advantage to making the South is significant JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION, that the highest and which are also high, so instead of doing the hard and (13,000 feet in the southern aisle Forster) get gradually.   Another advantage is that such design gives you the option, if you choose to do all for once and do most of the trail (1700 miles from 2700) with the troakerim.

Hey Ronnie me early.

So just add one more thing and I say.

The JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION should definitely go go from North to South. Namely the TUOLUMNE MEDOWS towards MT. WHITNEY. It rated and slight growth. What I think you should begin no earlier than June 20. Although it obviously depends on the amount of snow. You even get to Yosemite and enjoy this amazing Park tourist area and then go to the High Sierra. Have some snowy passim you want. Your disadvantage. It is likely that if you navigate passim blocked some tracks will not be too much to follow. On the other hand.. All Lakers thrash will meet you and will tell you a big thank you to hatzbtam their way through the snow , they do not give you. If so, they're not the Laker Theroux

After arrival to KENNEDY MEDOWS should jump forward again and join the herd a little tstmtzm now and move into Northern California. You have amazing places there on PCT. I don't know what your time frame, but you can map to walk the rest of the PCT as Rooney. If you have limited time and you have to choose then again give us a deadline and we recommend.

Oh, and be sure to tell Monty. I'm still full from barbecue he gave me in the middle of Northern California in a forest.

We are not limited in time but the weather is planning to travel until you begin to block us Blizzard or C'mon (hopefully that won't be the reason for the break) and then split up to which month each going to visit American friends around us and after that meeting in Mexico and decide where do we go by the way if you have recommendations on short tracks for a few days to two weeks in Central America would love to know about the names/paths reserved and shut down on the North American tour so we can think about that, too.

Hey

If you decide to terminate the PCT so you'll have to go and go. You don't want to get into October in Washington. This year winter came as early as mid-September, but it was El Nino year and everything was crazy. (Was 500 miles of snow between KENNEDY and the MEDOWS to Northern California)

UM ... I guess I don't really care what's on the way, so just go until you realize, you can't go. Then the pace of your walk doesn't really matter. If you want specific recommendations about things then the rate hike of the year.

You should look at Belize in Central America.

Exported to pct this year plans to begin to go 22-4-2011 and return to happy company k

Registration for ko still doesn't I missing statementby Blake's longtime measure about Israelis.

Just an update as the subject hatchtbo seals. (As one who lives in b. c) in most of the border crossings from Canada to United States Passport no underwriters, so shouldn't be a problem to return to the United States, especially if keeping it white apply to six months. So whoever crossed by foot. Ltzadikim can also access the border point ausius or abospord and enter.
